SECULARISM: A FEMINIST ISSUE
HOW YEARS OF MALE INTERPRETATION OF RELIGION IS AFFECTING THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF WOMEN’S RIGHTS
No matter which religion we take into consideration; the space for women is limited. What is even worst, is that during the years, men interpreted religions to put “women in their place”. Our freedoms, our bodies, our choices have to follow a strict line drawn by men to limit our lives as women. The aim is to understand how interpretation is limiting our fight to get our rights, and what should we do - together - to fight these interpretations that are affecting our sisters around the world, especially when religion is not separated from the State.
