Cairo – Ambassador Mervat El-Tallawy, Director-General of Arab Women Organization (AWO), stated that Islam is a pro-women religion par excellence and guaranteed them their full rights such as the right to identity assertion, and the right to choice, and ownership.
El-Tallawy said that the textual and practical evidence of Islam’s support to women empowerment are both well established as there is an entire Chapter of the Holy Quran named: The Women (Al-Nisa in Arabic) that addresses women issues in heritage, marriage, family, divorce and relationship to men in addition to a whole lot of issues.
“Some patriarchal traditions which are hold dear by the community undermine women’s rights, encourage extremist thought, and offend against Islamic message of tolerance, compassion and peace. These traditions are just the opposite of Islam in every sense,” she noted.
