  • In recent months, a number of groups have promoted misconceptions about Muslim beliefs.


  • In particular, broad generalizations about the treatment of women in the Muslim world have been widely used to paint Islam as brutal or inhumane.


  • But for many of the world’s one and a half billion Muslim men and women, this does not ring true.

    但是對這世上 15 億的穆斯林善男信女來說,這並不是事實。

  • So, what does the Western world often get wrong about women in Islam?


  • To start, public debate in the west often characterizes women in Islam as subordinate to men and in some ways, inferior as a result of Islamic scripture.


  • Men having multiple wives, women being forced to wear facial coverings, and not allowed to leave the home are often used as examples of such oppression.


  • Many believe that Islam’s holy book, the Quran, dictates these rules, and is thus inseparable from the values of Islam.


  • But this is not quite true. While there are, in fact, Quranic verses which say that men arein chargeof women, the Quran also stresses fairness and justice towards women.


  • For example, although polygamy is often justified by a passage in the Quran, that same passage says,


  • if you fear that you will not be able to maintain justice between your wives, then marry only one.”


  • Values concerning the respect of women in the Quran are often overlooked in interpretation and practice.


  • Moreover, the overwhelming majority ofrulesfound in Muslim majority countries which are oppressive to women do not have a direct basis in the Quran.


  • Instead, they are the result of rulings by Muslim jurists since the 10th century, long after the death of the prophet Muhammad, and the writing of the Quran.


  • A closer look at the inequality women face in certain countries shows that it is not Islam, or Islamic teaching which promote oppression,


  • but oppressive governments using religion to maintain control over the people.


  • One frequent example is Saudi Arabia, where women suffer from some of the worst inequality in the world.


  • Their prohibition from driving, or leaving the home without a chaperone, comes up again and again in the media.


  • But Saudi Arabian oppression extends to many other groups, including minorities, and even other sects of Islam.


  • And those rules against women driving aren’t found in any other country.


  • In other words, oppression in Saudi Arabia is largely a problem with Saudi Arabia, not with Islam.


  • Meanwhile, Muslim women in countries like Indonesia and Malaysia see considerably greater freedom, and higher rates of education, while keeping within Muslim tradition.


  • In Indonesia, women have a roughly 90% literacy rate, as compared to Pakistan where the rate is closer to 40%.

    相較於巴基斯坦女性 40% 的識字率,在印尼的女性則有約 90% 的識字率。

  • These more liberal countries are marked by greater democracy, and a blend of cultural influences from other religions.


  • For Muslim women living outside of politically unstable monarchies and theocracies, life is considerably better.


  • And while passages within the Quran do place women in a somewhat deferential role to men, that is arguably also the case in all three Abrahamic religions, including Christianity and Judaism.


  • And in all cases, the real issue is governments and movements that build control around religion.


  • It's important to understand that the repression of women is not simply a factor of extremest Islam, but of extremism as a whole.


  • But women are fighting back, both against repressive governments and Western misunderstanding.


  • Check out this video by Seeker Stories to learn about how women in France are taking back the veil.

    看看這個由 Seeker Stories 製作的影片吧,瞭解法國女性如何重新接納(伊斯蘭)面紗。

  • The veil then has come to symbolize the simmering undercurrent of Islamophobia in the country;


  • One that's only intensified following the Charlie Hebdo and Paris terrorist attacks.

    這種現象只有跟著 Charlie Hebdo 事件和巴黎恐攻強化。

  • But Subbamamud, professor of sociocultural anthropology at UC Berkeley, argues that Islamophobia in France goes way deeper than the veil controversy.

    但 Subbamamud ,UC Berkeley 的社會文化人類學教授,提出伊斯蘭恐懼症在法國不僅僅止於(伊斯蘭)面紗的爭點而已。

  • It's a measure of the walked way that some non-muslims in France see minority groups.
