A swarm of criticism has been levelled against Mona Eltahawy's recent Foreign Policy cover story on the state of women in the Arab world. The Quran is written in Arabic. And the people of Egypt, the largest Arabic-speaking Muslim country in the world, largely believe it to be the immutable, divine word of God -- Women are not allowed to recite it while they're menstruating. That is how much it's revered....

Now, yes we have literature coming from the classical Islamic tradition still obsessed with you as a woman. You have to think about your role as a mother and wife. This is what I’m always saying. We are obsessed in Islamic tradition with speaking about women and the role and the functions in fact within the society which is completely wrong. A woman who decides for herself to wear the headscarf, you cannot say that she is alienated or self-alienated…
