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....

The Ten Female Muslim Scientists Paving the Way to a Better Future
Afrah Mansour

Today is the international day for women in science, so what finer chance to celebrate the contributions of Muslim scientists than today! Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) has said: “Seeking knowledge is a mandate for every Muslim (male and female).” These women have embodied this and shown the world what it means to be an active achiever and mover of the world in which we live.

And a Big Big Thank You to few of those who have been supporting such women. Before I die…I wish to see a world with no discrimination because of sex, caste, colour or religion. So many hopes, I know!! Well… We shall overcome someday…..

Obstacles and Women’s Ambitions
Tamadur Alyami

In the Holy Qur’an we read Allah criticizing the Prophet (pbuh), “Wilt thou then compel people until they become believers?” Then, on what basis of the Shariah rule they imprison women who remove their black gown (Abaya), which is just a cover? Is it reasonable to impose guardianship on all Saudi women without exemption, although globally it’s applied on minors?


Stop Calling Feminists ‘Islamophobic’ For Fighting For the Right of Muslim Women Not To Cover Themselves
Lise Ravary

However, many, myself included, opposed the Charter because it took peoples’ freedom to follow their religion and dress as they wish. My feminist Muslim acquaintances and colleagues reminded me that not all choose freely to cover their hair and dress modestly. It is often dictated by tradition and enforced by fathers, husbands, sons or brothers, or even by other women in their social circles. Sometimes subtly, sometimes with incredible violence....


Women and Jihad: The Motivation of Female Suicide Bombers
Greer Fay Cashman

Some of the women were aggressive, saying that Palestine would be part of the large Islamic state. Others expressed admiration for al-Qaida’s Osama bin Laden and Hezbollah’s Hassan Nasrallah and said that they hoped that all Arabs would be like them. One woman said: “The base of the conflict between Jews and Palestinians is a religious struggle.” The faces of all the women, including the most highly educated, shone with a religious radiance that spoke of the depth of their indoctrination....

Beyond The Muslim Veil
Moin Qazi

Elsewhere, the fully empowered Muslim woman sounds like a self-assured, post-feminist type—a woman who draws her inspiration from the example of Sukayna, the brilliant, beautiful great-granddaughter of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW).  She was married several times, and, at least once, stipulated in writing that her husband was forbidden to disagree with her about anything. ..l...
