Women’s Rights Project
Currently, I am working on a project in which I am hoping to draw attention to the suffering of women’s rights within the Islamic community. At this moment, I am putting together a letter for distribution among Muslim Imams, scholars and leaders calling for reflection in regards to our status and for actions to be taken. I am also hoping to have endorsement of this project before the letter/emails go out.
It is my intention and hope to see some progress prior to March 11, 2007 as it will be 5 years since the 15 girls had burned to death in Saudi Arabia. I would like to take this project a step further and ask all of you to in some way remember these 15 girls and reflect upon the incident. I ask not that you write about these girls, I ask that you reflect. I ask that you in some way focus upon the injustices commited upon Muslim women by their fellow Muslims and I ask you to commit yourself to making a change in this regard.
Am I asking for too much?
