Standing Up For Iranian Women
Sheryl Saperia

“In the Islamic Republic of Iran, if you take off your headscarf and you appear in public unveiled, you get fined, you get arrested, you get lashes. You will be kicked out from your school if you are unveiled. You won’t be able to get a job.… When we fight against a compulsory hijab, we don’t fight against a piece of cloth. We fight for our dignity. We fight for our identity. And we fight for our personal lives...

One must come to terms with the fact that for decades, Muslim women have been restricted to a drawn out set of ideals that more often than not is upheld by their “Mehrams” (male guardians) on a micro level and the Islamic state on a macro level. More specifically, the history of dictation of female conduct in the public sphere, in regards to dress codes, is a rich one. Endless teachings of what to and what not to wear plague the world of the Muslim female, sexualizing her if she refuses to abide by these rules....

Two arguments are being made in this essay: 1] the condition of women in pre-Islamic Arabia depended on which tribe they belonged to – not all women were mistreated, in fact some were far more empowered before Islam than afterward…these reports all exist in Muslim sources; 2] Islam did not choose the more women-empowering pre-existing cultural mores to lay down laws regarding women. It appears that the Islamic laws related to women, while striving for some form of compassion for women, are consistently formed in ways to benefit men, and the focus of many of these laws has been to satisfy the almost obsessive interest of Islam in paternity....

In assessing the increasingly active employment of women in all sorts of military engagements, it shouldn’t be disregarded that terrorist ideologists are trying to take advantage of the fact that most Muslims are terrified by the prospect of being murdered by a women. After all, according to Muslim believes, a man who fell by the hand of a woman will not get 72 virgins in paradise. By the way, for the same exact reason Tel-Aviv enlists women in its armed forces in an attempt to destroy the morale of those Muslim armies that are fighting its troops....

 

We are teaching the world how to “love thy neighbour.” We are living proof that there is still peace in this world. I have no doubt in my mind that we will continue to inspire people to unite instead of succumbing to ancient stereotypes. So this International Women’s Day, I encourage you to look to the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom as an example of where hope for our country lies: in celebrating our differences as well as our shared humanity,...
