Iranian Women Protest the Mandatory Hijab
Tzvi Kahn

In this context, the hijab protests mark a repudiation of the clerical regime’s view of women and thus its fundamental religious and political legitimacy. This reality explains why Tehran deems the hijab protests such a threat – and why it likely will continue to suppress them through force....

Still a Long Way to Go For Voting Rights for Women
Rebecca Wright

Multiple international initiatives, including the United Nations programme on women's political participation, focus on removing barriers so women can vote. Such barriers are complex and multi-dimensional but include illiteracy (nearly two-thirds of the world's illiterate adults are women) and childcare responsibilities which prevent women from leaving the home. Much more needs to be done before every woman can have a meaningful say about the way their nation is run....

Why Iranian Women Are Protesting Now Against the Hijab
Ava Homa

Hijab became mandatory in Iran shortly after Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini seized power in the 1979 revolution. Although women were at the forefront of the protests that overthrew the monarchy in a failed attempt to bring democracy and freedom to Iran, one of the first laws of the new government was to disqualify female judges and force hijab upon women...

I Didn’t Want To Wear My Hijab, and Don’t Believe Very Young Girls Should Wear Them Today
Iman Amrani

I frequently draw on things that I learned at Islamic school and it was also there that I learned that Muslim girls didn’t actually have to wear the hijab, at least not until puberty. I’ve written in defence of the hijab and the Burkini and stand by everything I have said. The policing of Muslim women’s clothes is used to attack minority communities already at risk of being alienated by the mainstream. ...

 

Girls of Jerusalem Ensemble Gets Palestinian Voices Heard
Amani Nasser al-Shurafa

Banat al-Quds, which means “Girls of Jerusalem,” is a Jerusalem-based ensemble of young Palestinian female singers and performers. The group was founded in 2014 and now consists of 25 girls, ages 14 to 20. They meet every week at the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music in East Jerusalem for rehearsals. The choir sings Palestinian national songs about the Palestinian cause....

Thus the continued practice of child marriage without any restriction passes on all five counts laid out by Al-Ghazali so as to constitute Mafsadah and these reforms are an essential step towards Maslahah by ensuring these threats are averted and these archetypal Islamic values secured. This is why one of the greatest Caliphs of all time, Umar, like Al-Ghazali, was such a staunch advocate of focusing on the spirit of the law rather than the letter itself. They were fully cognisant of the fact that while the Maqasid are timeless, the rules and practices that facilitate their attainment are not....

Australian Muslim Women Don't Have To Be Told What We Can Wear

The accusation that religious garments are a precursor to radicalisation or violent extremism is one that has no grounds in the extensive body of terrorism literature. Respected terrorism experts have found that there are no links between modest clothing and violent extremism or terrorism; indeed, that religion is not a sole or major contributor to violent extremism.....

 

A Woman Can Lead Friday Prayers, It’s Not against Tenets of Islam
Syeda Hameed

Islam has unflinching regard and respect for women. The Quran, the Hadith, and the Sunnah are imbued with raising the status of women in a brutal, misogynist, patriarchal Arab society. Its most revolutionary act in a society that buried its girl children at birth was to give women property rights....

Tired of Their Veils:  Iranian Women Stage Rare Protests
Thomas Erdbrink

While discriminatory Islamic divorce and inheritance laws pose problems for individual women, the head scarf is a highly public symbol of a set of personal rules imposed by Iran’s clerical leaders, who decide what people can wear, what music they can listen to and what television programs and movies they get to see. Men are also the subject of clothing laws: They are forbidden to wear shorts in public....

Deadly Proposals: Killing a Woman Is Not a Crime in Pakistan

While the world is in the throes of movements that shame men who exploit and harass and humiliate women, Pakistan continues to insist on their lesser humanity, the denial of their dignity. Asma Rani died for this. In any other country this would be a tragedy; in Pakistan it is routine, just the way things are, the way men want them to be....

Who Will Hear Muslim Women?
Jyoti Punwani

There’s been much outrage that the community was not heard before the Bill was drafted. None of the parties who appeared in the triple Talaq matter before the Supreme Court were called for talks, though two women’s groups had approached the concerned ministries soon after the Supreme Court struck down triple Talaq. The Centre’s refusal to take on board these groups, which have worked with Muslim women at the grass-roots level, exposes its claim of wanting to “empower Muslim women” through the Bill....
