Islam Champions Women’s Rights
Brought to you by … the National Park Service?
“People think that Islam oppresses women and there’s no equality, but they’re wrong – there’s equity. … 7th century A.D. Islam gave women the right to be involved in politics, the right to earn and keep her own money. Islam gave women the right to work outside of the home, Islam gave women the right to own property, Islam gave women the right to divorce, Islam gave women the right to choose who she marries. Islam gave women a whole bunch of rights that Western women acquired later in the 19th and 20th centuries and we’ve had these rights since the 7th century A.D. and it’s just not acknowledged worldwide.”
Islam also gave women forced teen marriage, genital mutilation and honor killings, but hey, who’s keeping score?
Just remember: Your tax dollars paid for it.
