Egypt's Female Performance Groups on the Rise
Youssra el-Sharkawy

Female Islamic bands are emerging as a new fixture at women's celebrations around Egypt. Fully or partially veiled, and wearing sparkling but unrevealing clothes, they perform at weddings, where men and women are segregated, and at henna parties, where women come together before a wedding or to celebrate a birth. The bands purposely do not violate Sharia in their performances.....

Khalid Hassan

“Outlawing customary marriage or raising the age of marriage for female minors to address population growth could have adverse effects. This measure could promote secret and illegitimate relationships between men and women, which is against the teachings of the Islamic faith.”....

Saudi Women between Online Resistance and New Physical Realities

Still, any political protest is risky in Saudi Arabia, and political discourse by Saudi women is particularly unacceptable, often entailing fierce punishments. Such extreme conditions ultimately lead to a unique ‘protest ecology’ with little resemblance to what many traditionally think of as ‘activism’. For example, external threats mean these anonymous female activists will likely never meet, and therefore their online protests seemingly stand little chance of becoming offline actions. Within such anonymous, scattered resistance, can opportunities for real psychological resistance still occur...

Yara al-Wazir

It causes disorientation, reduces concentration levels on what really matters, causes distractions, and fundamentally decreases the productivity. This is all in additional to the emotional turmoil suffered by women, which cannot be quantified....

Quebec, Islam and Face-Covering

How should a liberal democracy respond when a historically Christian majority makes room for cultures and philosophical ideas that range from indifference, even hostility, to all religion to devoutly practised Islam? There are lots of places which have that dilemma, but it seems especially sharp in Quebec.....

Mehreen Faruqi

How is your health? Are you OK?’ Something is missing for them in the picture,”...

Stop Policing Women’s Clothes
Dr Shenila Khoja-Moolji

Stop Policing Women’s Clothes
Dr Shenila Khoja-Moolji

The purpose behind not policing women is to give them the space to decide what they want to wear, when, and where. It does not mean that women will necessarily choose to break the norms of a community within which they move about. Indeed, people’s choices are often mediated by the social structures within which they live. Why must we think that if as a society we were to stop opining on women’s clothes that women would necessarily decide to shed their clothes and roam about half-naked?...

How the Teachings of Islam Could Help Us Prevent More Sexual Abuse Scandals
Qasim Rashid

My advocacy is informed not just by the law, but by strategies detailed in Islamic teachings and Prophet Muhammad’s example to pre-empt sexual abuse. Yes, the cancer of sexual abuse against women that we see in Christian majority America is just as prevalent in Muslim majority Pakistan, but also in Hindu majority India and state atheist China. This proves that men worldwide are failing in our responsibility to end sexual abuse and gender based violence....

If women are included in equal numbers in peace negotiations, the outcome of many such dialogues would be different. But it needs to be recognised that gender-related violence and oppression, the subjugation of women and denying them social justice also trigger conflict. It robs the socio-political environment of stability, and a big section of the population is left discontented....
