While extreme Wahhabist Islamist government regimes may preach that harsh laws preventing women from basic rights are encouraged by the Quran, what it really comes down to is one’s interpretation of the text. The Quran outlines one of the most egalitarian world-views, more so than any other monotheistic religion. There are multiple excerpts from the Quran that proclaim equality for the sexes...

Friesen had viewed figure-emphasizing clothes as symbols of an empowered 21st century woman, but she had never considered the other perspective. “I could be walking down the street with shorts up to here and a shirt cut down to here,” Friesen said, gesturing toward herself. “I would feel like an empowered, free woman, but that wouldn’t change the fact that the person next to me saw me as a piece of meat.”....

I was walking towards them, I looked in their direction, attempted to make eye contact to nod and say hello as I often do when passing people. They avoided my eyes, and eventually sent in my direction what I perceived to be a scowling look. This all happened within seconds by the way. I frowned and I asked myself, does the Muslim woman hate me?....


Should Triple Talaq Be Outlawed?
Anuradha Raman

But please don’t assume that the Quran does not condone Talaq. It has been described as one of the worst options to be exercised only under extenuating circumstances. It allows for an exit when the marriage breaks down but only under certain conditions. The Talaq-e-Ehsan, one form of divorce, is over a period of three months and it is only after the completion of the third month that you are no longer man and wife. The Talaq-e-Bidat or triple Talaq at one go allows the man to exhaust all the options at once....

Is Islam The Most Feminist Religion?
Bina Shah

I don’t like to make assertions that Islam is a feminist religion. I like to think of it as something even bigger than feminism: a system through which we humans achieve our full potential on earth as well as cultivating our relationship with our Creator. This is a struggle that applies to both men and women. How we run our affairs on earth can be influenced very positively by feminism. ..

Torture and Sexual Violence in Afghanistan
Musa Khan Jalalzai

Women, who had previously attempted to commit suicide to escape rape and violence, girls living with irksome memories of sexual violence and torture, and young children, who never mention their stories of sexual humiliation at the hands of warlords, war criminals, police and army commanders, still live in a frightening environment. Due to the three-decades-long war, poverty, illiteracy, and unemployment on top of the consecutive migration crisis, Afghanistan continues to remain the worst place for girls and young children....
