Religion & Feminism: Happily Married or Strange Bedfellows?
No puns intended here, but I recently returned from a meeting of women's rights leaders in the Middle East and North Africa. During one of the session, there was a heated discussion about whether issues of sexuality and sexual rights should be "taken on" by women's movements in the region. Some said "absolutely" - that there were part and parcel to true democracy. Others argued for these issues to take a back seat, at least while more "basic" issues of political stability and economic welfare remain to be addressed. What do you think?
