Globalization of Political Islam and women’s rights
Updated: Jan 18
The Shari’a Law in Canada; Honour Murders in Germany, England and Denmark; Religious schools in Sweden; Veil in France; ... brought up the globalization of women’s and girls rights to the fore. These incidents show once again the woman hostility of cultural relativism, the outcome of injustice and also how the political and religious forces’ attacks on secular values look like.
