Can Muslim Feminism Find a Third Way?
Ursula Lindsey

In Muslim countries, laws governing inheritance are derived from verses in the Quran; men generally receive larger, sometimes double, the shares that women get. Distant male relatives can supersede wives, sisters and daughters, leaving women not just bereaved but also destitute. Raising the issue of inheritance and inequality has long been considered blasphemous...

A Husband for My Daughter
Fahd Al-Ahmadi

In our conservative society, a girl does not have many options when it comes to choosing her future husband. Of course, she and her family can reject the first and second proposals, but if they refuse the third her chances of getting married will thin out. She will have a reputation that she has been rejecting all possible suitors. The chances of girls getting proposals are not very high if not totally scant in Saudi society because of the segregation of sexes in public places....

From Malala To Parkland, Why Are The Victims Demonised?
Nesrine Malik

Last week she returned to Pakistan for the first time since she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman six years ago. Yet her visit was marred by a grotesque coordinated campaign, where private school teachers announced an “I am not Malala” day. Children were made to wear black armbands, hold up placards and sit through lectures on why Malala should be condemned....

Hijab: A Very French Obsession
Rokhaya Diallo

In a country that views "the seduction of women" as an important aspect of its national identity, it is easy to understand why Hijabi women can attract criticism. In France, men who "seduce" are adored and admired as "Don Juans"; in such a context, one can imagine that women who voluntarily decide to withdraw parts of their bodies from public view can be perceived as subversive....

Muslim Men Mobilise Women for Mass Rally against Triple Talaq Bill
Jyoti Punwani

The Oshiwara meet ended with women sobbing as a long Dua (by a man) bemoaned the fact that women’s tears had dried up and their hearts had hardened like those of men.   By the end of these preparatory meetings, the women were raring to go. Clear instructions were given: “Your men folk will guide you to buses which will leave from the nearest Masjid. Though exams are on, leave children at home. Let the men look after them. Carry water and Electral, but no plastic bags. Do not litter. Show the world that Muslims can be disciplined.  Above all, wear your burqa. There will be no slogans because Islam does not like women’s voices to be raised. If the media asks why you are here, tell them this Bill is against our religion, Shariat and our rights.”...

The Moon-Faced Lady’s Dargah
Rana Safvi

Her name was Chanda (moon), and Asaf Jah II, the Nizam of Hyderabad, gave her the title Mahlaqa Bai (moon-faced lady). She was born in 1768 to Mida Bai, also known as Roop Kanwar Bai. Her birth was a miracle as her mother suffered a miscarriage while on a pilgrimage to Koh-e-Ali. Shah Tajalli Ali, a scholar and sage who was accompanying her, immediately brought her a thread and some incense sticks from the shrine....

Adequate examples to display this would be the passing of the first Married Women’s Property Act in 1882. Before this, British women were unable to hold property without the assistance of their husbands. Similarly, in the United States the basic right to vote was not given to women until 1920. During the start of Islam, Muslim women helped shape societal rules and regulations. Women in leadership positions are mentioned in the Quran on multiple occasions. Meanwhile, in America women of colour were not able to vote until the 60’s. Therefore, the time gap between when Islam gave women rights is significant when compared to popular Western nations....

Will Pakistan Change Its Mind about Malala, or Continue to Think She’s A CIA Agent?
Reham Khan

During our meeting with Malala, my daughters immediately took to her; they were soon chatting away about showbiz and music like only teenage girls can. I had made this trip because I had recently been labelled an agent by the Pakistani media myself, and it struck me how horrible this child must have felt all these years. I was pleasantly surprised to find a bright undefeated spirit in this young girl, who was completely unaffected, by her celebrity status....
