Muslim Female Leadership; Illusion or Reality

We are lead to believe that the Muslim Woman is a powerless beings and although in most cases this may be true, there are exceptions to that rule…

Unless you have been living under a rock, you are no doubt aware of the daily media assault on your sense regarding what they call the “imminent danger we face at the hands of radical extremist”.

The question is, are we really in danger or has the media turned the entire Muslim people into a bunch of al Quida linked, Jihad seeking nutters.
Or have the marginal few, been made into the face of a peaceful majority?

The problem is that through these generalization we cannot objectively see more than what we are told to see.
As a result we often cannot see past the Burqae to who these Muslim women are. Rightly or wrongly, we see these women as repressed.
While in reality many contemporary Muslim women see our own feminist freedoms as the ultimate perversion and suppression of women.

Muslim Female Leadership, is it an Illusion or Reality?

When it comes to women’s rights and being a Muslim woman, there are two women who stand out in sharing diametrically opposed political views.

One of these women is the Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali and the other is Pakistani born Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.

These women offer a striking study in the tendentious issue of Islamic women’s rights and that we cannot judge a book by its gender.

My guest on The Accidental Guru Show on Thursday March 29th 2012 will be an award winning Journalist by the name of Deborah Scroggins.

Deborah Scroggins is the author of a brand new HarperCollins book called: WANTED WOMEN: Faith, Lies, and the War on Terror: This is a book about the lives of these two women: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.

If you are kept informed about what’s going on in the world via the traditional news outlets like FOX news, there’s a good chance that you have never even heard of these two contemporary female leaders of the Muslim world, and this show will change all that.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and Dr Aafia Siddiqui are two diametrically opposed but equally fascinating women and my award winning guest is joining me to give you a peak into these women’s lives and share with us who they are as women, & who they are as leaders.
