The ramifications of this system of male guardianship and sex segregation are felt by Saudi women in their daily lives. In the field of education, the general framework of education is tailored to reinforce discriminatory gender roles and what the authorities consider as suitable to "women's nature and future role as wives and mothers." In addition, women's and girls' access to education depends on the good will of male guardians, whose permission is essential for their educational enrolment. Sex segregation undermines women's right to equality in education, especially when female university and professors are often relegated to unequal facilities with unequal academic opportunities….

In 2012, the Taliban forced the closure of 600 schools in the eastern provinces. Recently, in Takhar province, 125 girls from the Bibi Hajra School were admitted into hospital after being poisoned by terrorists. A week later, another 40 girls from the same school were poisoned again and from Ahan Dara, a girl’s school in Taloqan, 160 girls were admitted to hospital after being poisoned by unknown terrorists. The illegal market of selling and buying of women and young girls in some districts of Jalalabad province is an age-old practice….

However, to hope that the Malala factor would make all the Hakeemullah Mehsuds and George Bushes (or Bushies like Obama) see the error of their ways is akin to intoxication wrought by South Asian moonshine! It does not change the fact that, post-9/11, the Muslim world has been at the receiving end of disproportionate revenge. It also does not change the fact that resistance or insurgency has retaliated with no regard for any principle of Islam....

She then came to very sensitive issues such as gender bias. She questioned the children about whether they suffer from gender discrimination at home. Initially not much opening up, some children finally recognized the existence of discrimination, and the fact that sons are often preferred over daughters. Nilakshi emphasised on the very necessity to pursue studies as far as possible for both boys and girls even though it might be difficult and it comes at a cost. She also asked to boys to help their sisters continuing their studies…. 

 

At least nine countries of the Arab world that recognize Sharia as a source of law have set the minimum marriage age at 18 or older. This list includes Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Jordan, Oman, Algeria, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates. This recognition of a need for marriage laws from within Muslim-majority countries suggests that setting a minimum age for marriage is not contrary to Islamic law, and perhaps is necessary in a modern Islamic state….
