Deborah Williams

Each student took a risk — stuck her neck out, we might say — in an effort to become the head of her own life. And in their conversations about the risks and challenges that confront them as young women, they came to see that difference is not a threat but is instead an opportunity for engagement and a source of strength....

In The Battle Over Who Gets To Define Islam, Why Should The Moderates Remain Silent?
Rafia Zakaria

If extremist interpretations that insist on the Burqa as a religious requirement can promote and propagate their position, shouldn’t the government or elected representatives of Muslim countries be similarly permitted to purport their opposition to certain interpretations? In the battle over who gets to define Islam, why should the moderates remain silent?...

For Muslim women these two words together should conjure up images of Umm Handala, Khansa, Nusaibah, Khadijah and Aayisha, but many have yet to learn about these strong women of Islam. Also, there is a lack of knowledge of the nuanced roles Muslim men and women should have in sustaining society. If we start there, then there will be no need for a feminist version of Islam....

There is widespread Islamophobia in the world today and Islam, that literally means 'peace', is continually vilified. The religion has perhaps come under maximum criticism for its alleged mistreatment of women. However, Muslim women feel that Islam is at the forefront of gender justice and it has been misinterpreted by proponents of patriarchy to subjugate women over the ages....

Morocco’s Burqa Ban: a Strong Message against the Forces of Radicalism from a Muslim Nation
Rudroneel Ghosh

In that sense, the Burqa ban is a strong message that the Moroccan state doesn’t accept what the Islamic full veil represents and the status it accords to women. That said, I agree that a ban on Burqa itself will not defeat radicalism. However, there is substantial evidence to suggest that Morocco is also doing quite a bit in terms of spreading moderate Islam for the Burqa to be dropped organically....

Today, according to Afghani, about 20 percent of Kabul’s mosques have special prayer areas for women, whereas only 15 years ago there were none. The sermons delivered by imams about the importance of education have also helped many women persuade their families to let them study. In fact, some 6,000 imams in Afghanistan have participated in Afghani’s training program.....
