Why don’t feminists fight for Muslim women?

When it comes to women’s rights, Western culture and Islamic culture have little in common. The West and Judeo-Christian culture hold the equality of women and men as an unalienable right. But the same is not true in Islamic cultures. In this week’s video, author and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali — who was raised in a religious Muslim society — describes in depth the inequalities and injustices women face in nations governed by Islamic law. And this is not just some faraway threat. The recent culture clash caused by the immigration of millions of Muslims to the West has highlighted the vast differences between Islamic and Western values, especially with regard to the treatment of women. So why have Western feminists remained silent on the oppression of so many women? And what can be done to improve Muslim women’s rights? Watch the video below to find out.
