I previously wrote about Islam vs. Feminism and Islamic Feminism.
As much as I and other Muslim women wish it weren’t, the hijab is the subject that everything comes back to with regards to women’s rights in Islam. Since there is no way of avoiding this topic, I might as well confront it head-on (no pun intended).
In this post, I will attempt to explain what the hijab is, why women wear it, what its status is in different countries, and why I, as a progressive Muslim woman, am against the hijab.
