This little gem floated around Facebook a week months ago. (It floats around every couple of months actually.) It sparked a discussion – yay! However, many of those comments were predicated on assumptions not facts and started a few arguments because there were a few who were unwilling to listen and preferred to cling tight. Of course, it supposed to start a discussion. It was purposely drawn to be provocative. I actually used it as part of my undergraduate thesis.
This topic will probably run us the whole week since it IS such a broad and hot topic. But, I’m starting with this to give everyone a chance to pose any questions or observations they have before getting a little more in depth.
But, for today MY question to you: “Is there a debate on the status of women in Islam and if so, why?”
