Nikah Halala: Does the Quran Permit This? Absolutely Not
Rana Safvi

Thus polygamy was allowed only if they could treat wives equally and verse 129 clarified, “It will not be within your power to treat your wives with equal fairness, however much you may desire.” So, nowhere does the Quran give carte blanche for Muslim men to indulge in polygamy. Forgetting or ignoring the conditions the Quran laid down, men continue these practices....

Role of Women during the Era of Reform against the Backdrop of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan and His Contemporaries’ - Part One
Tahir Kamran

Sifting through the annals of history, one may also ask: how was the role of women re-assessed during the era of reform against the backdrop of Sir Syed Ahmad Khan and his contemporaries’ bid to make social adjustment in the newly emergent dispensation? The discourse of political decline extended to the social realm. The family as a primary social unit was reconfigured during this period. Deputy Nazir Ahmed, Ashraf Ali Thanwi and even Abul Kalam Azad had a few prescriptions to offer, mostly lamenting the declining scale of morality among women....

Afghanistan and Pakistan Need Equal Participation of Women in Maintaining and Promoting Peace and Security
Quhramaana Kakar Anwarzai

Women of the two countries share a history of living in a patriarchal society and facing systematic misogyny in the name of culture and religion. Societies and governments in both countries have often undermined women’s effective role in decision-making. Women’s narratives of peace building have often been ignored, while the rare revelation of their account is very submissive and is not encompassed in serious decisions affecting peace and conflicts....

But bin Salman’s pronouncement flies in the face of a female dress code that had been for decades strictly enforced by law. Adhering to a literalist strain of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism, Saudi authorities required all women in the country—foreign and local—to wear Abayas in public. They required Muslim women to cover their hair with a hijab or a headscarf. And though the state did not require Saudi women to cover up almost completely with a Burqa, many chose to do so anyway. Given the ambiguities between long-time expectations and bin Salman’s recent pronouncements, observers are now wondering if al-Rifaie was out of line....

Muslim Women and Islamophobia: Muslim Women Are Most Affected By Anti-Muslim Hatred
Sultanah Parvin

We are living in a time of deeply polarised politics, in the midst of which are the victims of a scandalous pay gap, sexual violence, prejudice, bigotry, homophobia and the like. Women are disproportionately affected by most forms of discrimination especially poor women and those from black and minority communities, along with our children. Islamophobia forms another aspect of this....

Male Guardianship for Saudi Women: Such an Archaic, Authoritarian System Has No Place in Islam
Sheema Khan

While abolishment of the driving ban should be celebrated, we must not forget the real target should be the male guardianship system, whereby a woman must obtain permission by her male guardian (husband, father, son, uncle, etc) for basic life decisions. No matter her age or marital or professional status, she remains a legal dependent throughout her life....

 

MeToo Will Not Solve Girls Problems They Need Encouragement
Misha Rehman

And this last one is for all the girls and women around the globe. Don’t ask men to stop harassing, looking, teasing or attacking us. We are begging for a long time. They will remain the same. Now the time has come to deal with them on their grounds. Always keep in mind God has given everyone power, and someone who is negative can never be strong. So don’t be scared just because the one in front of you is a boy. Be courageous and be ready to “Attack Back”....

 

The Journey of a Female Is Marked By Discrimination from Birth to Death
Zakia Soman

In recent years, there have been instances where elected representatives and religious leaders have openly espoused patriarchal and misogynist views. An elected representative in UP exhorted Hindu women to give birth to more number of children to counter the Muslim population growth. Another Hindutva leader in that state suggested that Muslim women can overcome the issue of triple Talaq by becoming Hindu. Such utterances undermine the Muslim women’s movement for justice and strengthen the conservatives in the community....

‘Women behind the Wheel Is a PR Move’: Saudia Arabia Has Lifted Its Ban on Female Drivers, but This Is a Rebrand, Not a Revolution
Arwa Mahdawi

If I see one more article about Saudi women being able to drive I am going to throw myself under a car. Don’t get me wrong, I am glad Saudi Arabia has lifted the world’s only ban on women driving. But I am also worried. Rather than being a meaningful step towards progress, as much of the coverage suggests, the reversal of the driving ban is quite the opposite....

 

Afghan Women:  Not Simply the Victims of the Taliban Reign of Obscurantist Religious Interpretations; But Also the Victims of Their Culture
Rafia Zakaria

It laments the continued persistence of ‘traditional practices’ that impede women’s access to justice. The conclusion is correct; ‘traditional practices’, honour crimes, and Badal all involve female subjugation of one sort or another. If they were considered essential before, they are imagined as even more crucial now, the parts of Afghanistan that no one could change, that no one will change. The cruel price of this is to be paid by Afghan women....
