Description - The Rights of Women in Islam by Haifaa A. Jawad

It has been argued that Islam liberated Muslim women by granting them full rights as citizens. Yet in reality we see that women have long been subjected to both cultural and political oppression. Instances such as forced marriages are sadly common in the Muslim World, as are restrictions on education and on their role in the labour force.

Buy The Rights of Women in Islam by Haifaa A. Jawad from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
