“The truth is that Islam has come to elevate the position of women to that of dignity and nobility. Women were seen as objects of fun, pleasure and amusement during the jahiliyyah period, but when Islam came, it liberated the women from oppression and injustice, by teaching respect and honor of women. “Islam gives women a number of rights, some of which were not even enjoyed by Western women until the 19th century....

Divorce And Workingwomen
Samar Al-Mogren

Women used to continue a half-life due to social considerations because society looks down on a divorced woman. Society has changed and the level of awareness has risen. In my opinion, society no longer treats a divorced woman with aversion because she is not a burden on others. Now she can bear her own economic responsibilities and those of her children. So long as she is not a burden on others, she is safe. Other members of society will not look down on a divorcee as they used to do in the past.....

In Honour’s Name: Women Continue to Pay the Cost of Patriarchy with Their Lives
Nadia Agha

For women who manage to survive an honour killing attempt, this issue continues to haunt them. Such a woman is often married off outside the community and disowned by her kin as punishment. She then enters a new world of agony — to be taunted as kari (‘black’, or corrupt, woman) and reminded of her status whenever she attempts to resist the oppression against her....

In the tail-end of this debate, I want to highlight a single incident of Bachabazi occurred on 14 December 2016 in Jowzjan province, where known war criminal and Vice President of Afghanistan, General Rashed Dostum sexually abused a former governor Mr Ahmad Eshchi. He (Mr Eshchi) told journalists that Vice President and his ten cronies sexually assaulted him, raped him and kept in a private jail for five days. This shameless incident painted a transmogrified picture of the Afghan nation in the international community....

Female Terrorists: What Is So New?
Shahedul Anam Khan

Female members in a terror outfit have not been merely couriers but, if one delves into the history of terrorism or into the re-emergence of it from the early sixties and seventies, women had led the main action as well, apart from the fact that most terrorist organisations have had a female wing to supplement the main effort. Leila Khaled, the first woman to hijack a plane and blow it up eventually, captured public imagination and so did Thenmozhi Rajaratnam, the LTTE suicide bomber who blew up Rajiv Gandhi in a suicide attack in 1991….

Banning the Burqa Does Nothing to Help Muslim Women
Ali A. Rizvi

I grew up in Saudi Arabia, seeing my professor mother and physician sister forced to cover their hair and bodies. My problem is with the more general concept of legislating dress codes for women, something we in the West should never be doing. Freedom of choice also means the freedom to make bad choices, and to me, the best way to fight bad ideas is with good ideas, not bans.......

Honour and Horror: Culturally Sanctioned Killings of Women Continue To Take a Tragic Toll in Pakistan
Khaled Ahmed

Tribal societies live on the basis of honour — which hinges on female members of the tribe. Between 1998 and 2004, Pakistan saw about 4,000 people killed for honour, of whom 2,774 were women, meaning that when honour was at stake, women were sure to get killed....
