Inadvertently, it is the female population that is promoting a patriarchal society in the messages, values and attitudes they have passed down to their children. It is the small actions that perpetuate men’s power in the society. Majority of the times when the men of the family enter the house, our mothers would be on their feet or would send us to rush to the kitchen and get them water and food. However, how many times have this happened to girls when they enter the house your mothers would ask your brothers to get you water?...

 

Read together, verses 2:229 and 2:230 of the Qur’an state: “A divorce is only permissible twice: after that, the parties should either hold together on equitable terms, or separate with kindness (2:229); So if a husband divorces his wife (irrevocably), He cannot, after that, re-marry her until after she has married another husband and He has divorced her. In that case there is no blame on either of them if they re-unite (2:230).”...

Every Woman Prisoner in a Pakistani Jail Is Effectively Sentenced To Death
Rafia Zakaria

In this sense, other than the Bhuttos and the Sharifs and their ilk, every prisoner in a Pakistani jail is effectively sentenced to death. What happens to inmates beyond the walls of the prison, after the click of a lock, belongs to a domain where no morals or moral responsibility seems to apply. If male guards are raping female prisoners, if children are being molested, if women in dire need of mental health treatment are tied up or left in their own filth, then, well, so be it....

Muslim law knows various forms of dissolution of marriage. Talaq refers to the husband’s unilateral right to terminate the marital tie. The common perception is that Islam does not allow women the right to divorce. However, Section 18 of the Nikahnama allows the wife the right to divorce if she wishes to, known as the Talaq-e-Tafweez....

Pakistani Women Have Empowered Themselves in Nearly Every Field But Politics
Rafia Zakaria

One wonders how many elections, how many dramatic arrests (or non-arrests), how many rallies and verdicts will have to come to pass before Pakistani politics is not the realm of someone’s daughter, someone’s wife or someone’s sister. This election, creeping up on us, will not be the one to blaze that trail and make that crucial difference....
