“Palestinian women have always stood side by side with their fathers, brothers, husbands, comrades to resist the Zionist occupation, to fight for freedom and legitimate rights. They are the first to go to the streets to protest the brutality of the Israeli military occupation, the first to organize sit-ins and marches demanding the release of their children, brothers and fathers from Israeli prisons. They are the protectors, the supporters, but most of all they are the comrades in the fight for a free Palestine.”....

Remembering the First Lady of Islam
Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

 The portrayal of Muslim women that we glimpse in the media is grim and sombre. The public perception of them is one of stubborn stereotypes: supposedly powerless and oppressed, behind walls and veils, demure, voiceless and silent figures, discriminated and bereft of even basic rights.  Yet this is far from true. Contrary to general belief, Muslim women have held the flag of enlightenment all through the historical ages. The early Muslim community recognized and honoured a wide spectrum of female roles and responsibilities. A mother was considered the first school for her children. In Islam, a woman is seen as an individual in her own right, an independent entity, and not as a shadow or adjunct to her husband or any other man. Muslim women are fully entitled to education, work, business ownership, and inheritance. ...

Was Nur Jahan A Scheming Temptress Or Just An Independent Woman Who Historians Couldn’t Fathom?
Rana Safvi

She was the 35-year-old widow of a man who had fallen out of favour with the Mughal emperor when she caught the eye of Jahangir. Within years, Mehr-un-Nisa, or Nur Jahan as she is known in history, rose to become the most powerful woman in the Mughal empire – coins were minted in her name, she enacted legislation, issued edicts, interacted with foreign traders and determined the empire’s policy. But that is not the reason why I want to talk about her today, on Women’s Day. ...

 

Men Who Don’t Cry Are Burdens on Everyone, Not Least the Women Who Must Endure These Stunted and Repressed Creatures
Rafia Zakaria

Many men reading this article will not acknowledge how they are imprisoned by the norms of masculinity and how the requirement of projecting constant fearlessness and (largely fake) bravado has bred a persistent feeling of inadequacy and insecurity. Pakistani society, and arguably the world at large, provides a limited vocabulary for such conversations or admissions. Just like women can be the enemies of other women, men can be the greatest hurdles in the path of other men.....

 

Mehriban Aliyeva: The ‘Kind Lady’ Of Azerbaijan

Inside Britain’s Sharia Councils: Hardline and Anti-Women – Or a Dignified Way to Divorce?
Homa Khaleeli

Subject to various conditions and restrictions, husbands can end the marriage simply by declaring they are divorcing their wife – known as a Talaq. A wife can also initiate a divorce (known as a Khula), and if the husband agrees, the marriage can be ended. If he contests it, a third party can dissolve the contract – which is where Sharia councils step in. Without the council rulings, the panel tell me, many women feel they are still married in the sight of God – even if they have had a civil divorce....

Any expert will tell you that taking on a new faith is a serious commitment and a serious decision. Any woman who does so to find a husband should understand that the problem isn’t religious identity, but the customs and way of life of her new husband and of his family. She must learn her rights as well as her responsibilities — both the Islamic (Sharia) and those traditional to the North Caucasus (Adat).  If the former are violated, she mustn’t hesitate to seek help. It’s worth remembering that Islam doesn’t only concern itself with women’s duties — but their rights, too....

While extreme Wahhabist Islamist government regimes may preach that harsh laws preventing women from basic rights are encouraged by the Quran, what it really comes down to is one’s interpretation of the text. The Quran outlines one of the most egalitarian world-views, more so than any other monotheistic religion. There are multiple excerpts from the Quran that proclaim equality for the sexes...

Friesen had viewed figure-emphasizing clothes as symbols of an empowered 21st century woman, but she had never considered the other perspective. “I could be walking down the street with shorts up to here and a shirt cut down to here,” Friesen said, gesturing toward herself. “I would feel like an empowered, free woman, but that wouldn’t change the fact that the person next to me saw me as a piece of meat.”....
