So much has been said and written about the rights of women in Islam. How do we know when we are faced with cultural traditions and civil laws that are oppressive and unfair, or when we are dealing with Islamic Shariah law and does the difference matter? Do we need a woman's liberation movement in the Muslim world? We'll discuss this and also the real intent of Islam towards women.
