Arresting Feminists Doesn’t Inspire Faith in Saudi Arabia’s Much-Hyped Reform Agenda
Simon Henderson

His reforms were always likely to provoke opposition from within Saudi Arabia’s male-dominated, hierarchical society, which follows a strict interpretation of Islam. The apparent need to arrest women activists suggests that MbS is having to rethink his grand plans. In Saudi Arabia, MbS is sometimes likened to Saddam Hussein, the executed former dictator of Iraq. ...

‘Intersectional Feminism’ Proves That the Feminist Movement Is Often Exclusive and Largely White
Faima Bakar

Feminism often feels like it only accepts those who look like they subscribe to its ideals. Someone in a Burqa/Niqab isn’t seen as having agency therefore is pitied or only accepted if their fight is against the religious imposition. A Muslim woman who not only wears a headscarf, but a Burqa, a Niqab, and/or who has conservative views about sex and sexuality, is not usually accepted into feminist groups...

Islam’s religious values are separate from laws of countries, including views on women’s rights. In Islam, based on Ali’s interpretation of the Quran, freedom and respect are never rights denied to women.  She cites a verse in the holy book that says “it is not lawful for you to inherit women by compulsion. And do not make difficulties for them in order to take back part of what you gave them, unless they commit a clear immorality. And live with them in kindness.”...

Female Workplace Harassment and Responses in Pakistan
Marria Qibtia S Nagra

Generating a culture of psychological violence that manifests itself in the cyclical silence and acceptance of such harassment, since when such an incident does take place, reportage is never made a priority for the fear of victim blaming and shaming, female harassment does much harm than meets the eye. Psychologically proven, inactivity and helplessness in the face of such harassment leads to “self-blame”, a position whereby the victim considers herself to be responsible for the harassment when in reality,...
