A Gender Jihad For Islam's Future

Date: November 6, 2005
Author: Ms. Asra Q. Nomani
QUOTE: In the communities where we live, we have begun challenging customs that deny women rights from the mosque to the bedroom: gender segregation, mandatory veiling, forced early marriages, clitorectomies, polygamy, death for sex outside of marriage, domestic violence and strict domestic roles....challenge the ways in which Islam has been distorted by sharia rulings issued mostly by ultraconservative men.
