Last month, A Tribe Called Quest released their sixth and final studio album after the passing of Phife Dawg earlier this year.

I previously wrote about the main arguments some Muslims use against feminism, but let me talk more about Muslim feminists.
Some Muslim feminists like to point out that Muslim-majority countries have produced many female heads of state. While I wouldn’t use this as an argument to present Muslim societies as inherently feminist, I think it's necessary to point out that Muslim women are particularly keen on fighting for their rights precisely because they are often taken away from us. We know that we have to work hard in order to get what we deserve because nobody is just going to hand it to us. This produces very strong women who are able to take the highest position in a country.
