Pakistan Is On the Verge of Becoming an Ideal State for Men
Ayesha Gulalai

Pakistanis could have made history this time by being on the side of a victim — one of the thousands — who chose against staying silent and suppressing her identity, her pain, and trauma she felt. But this time, yet again, a rule resonated in society that a man can never be so wrong in dealing with a woman who has a devil inside her heart always and because of whose sins humans were thrown out of heaven.....

Europe: Burkini War Continues
Soeren Kern

Those in favour of the Burkini argue that women should be allowed to wear whatever they choose. Critics of the garment say it is an Islamic religious and political symbol which impedes integration and is incompatible with the liberal principles of secularism and gender equality. In recent months, the debate has added another dimension: public health and hygiene.....

Internalised Misogyny Is Doing the Work Of Making Women Turn On Each Other
Bina Shah

These two women should have worked together, in tandem with other women from all parties, to attempt to seek redress against the miserable way they claim they’ve been treated by powerful men. Instead, both women have fallen prey to the machinations of the political parties. They’ve allowed themselves to be used as pawns in a greater game of defamation and hobbling of the respective men they’re accusing, and their political parties....

Turkish Women Object to New Draft Law on Marriage
Ayse Arman

The first crack to break the vase was the Supreme Court’s decision “cancelling the civil marriage restriction before conducting a religious marriage,” in 2015. That is to say a man and woman could have a religious marriage—and the age of the woman is not given any importance—she can be the age of a child....

 

Why Is The Nikahnama Woven With Inequality Towards Women?
Hamza Tariq

For women in Pakistan, the latter is often the case since marriage bounds them to a contract that is deliberately created to disadvantage them. The institution of marriage has been weaponised by the male-dominated religious lobby in Pakistan to systematically disenfranchise women into a life that is decided by their significant other. The most integral part of this system is the Nikahnama (marriage certificate)....

Revenge Rapes Need To Be Punished
Aisha Sarwari

Revenge rape should technically mean that the man who raped a mere child should have been raped himself. In a misogynist culture like ours it means his sister, also a minor gets raped. This tells us that for the Panchayat it is a more cruel punishment to the rapist to see his sister raped. Therefore, having your sister, so-called dishonoured, is worse than your own death....
