    The picture which I have chosen depicts an Islamic women wearing a black burka and over her eyes there are prison bars. On the lower right corner there is a caption that reads “Stop the oppression of women in the Islamist world.” As a young woman who enjoys my freedom and believes strongly in equality of women this picture strikes me. The International Society for Human Rights, the creator of this picture, is a German society with a goal of stopping the oppression of humans. The group contains

    Women and Social Constraints in Islamic Society He wakes up in the morning— Does his teeth, bite to eat, and he’s rolling— Never change a thing, the week ends, and week begins— And all the little ants are marching, red and black antennas waving— They all do it the same, they all do it the same way. The philosopher Kempis noted, “Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.” Throughout history and throughout the world

    Islamic Society's Treatment of Women From the time of birth, a Muslim woman's place in Islamic society already has a shadow cast over it. Instead of the joyous cry that boys receive of "Allah Abkar"1 when they are born, a baby girl is welcomed into the world with a hushed Qurannic prayer. Although Islam venomously denies its role in the suppression of women, a survey of Islamic countries reveals that women are denied their humanity. The status of women in Islamic countries is undeniably inferior

    Regardless of religion, country, or background women from all over the world have constantly been made to look and feel inferior. Even in our own country known as the "land of the free" women were not given the right to vote until 1920. Even getting that took marching, lobbying, lectures, millions of supporters and so many other things. While we in the Western Civilization are fairly new to this “women equality” section of history and are still coping with women and minorities being disadvantaged in many

In the Arab-Muslim society familiar western concepts of sexual equality and the liberation of women are irrelevant and unnecessary from local women's point of view. Writing this essay I have explored and was fascinated by the different definitions of the power of a woman and where exactly it lays. In Arab-Muslim societies there

    the role of Muslim and Islam women, the first thought that comes in mind is a victim waiting for the right moment to approach Western Liberation. The ignorance of the people compels the woman to be portrayed as weak, and controlled on what they can wear and how they should act. What most people are not aware about is that the Prophet Muhammad was indeed pro women’s right, as he stated “To seek knowledge is an obligation on every Muslim, male and female” proves that women are treated as an equal. Even

    These questions are commonly asked by students and adults alike since this particular topic has seemingly eluded the awareness of most. Sexism is frequently the discrimination of women and/or favoritism of men. It is astonishingly prevalent and incredibly real in society. For instance, sexism in Arabic, Islamic countries, such as Afghanistan, is rampant and, unfortunately, not under control. Extremists believe sexism is merely a figment of the accuser’s imagination and the extremist’s view

    Since the dawn of time, women have been lower on the career totem pole. The gender pay gap is approximately 77 cents (Koros 17). If averaged out, it means women work an average of 57 days for free (Koros 17). The Paycheck Fairness Act, which hasn’t been passed yet, will “Promote more equity in pay structures, ensure paid parental leave, do more for addressing sexual violence on campuses and in the military, and provide more support for access to reproductive services” (Koros 17). Not only is there
