As a Muslim woman and mother, I have noticed the following points as violence against women.

• Preclusion of young girls from continuation of their education.
• Irresponsibility toward woman ‘s privilege rights
• Avoidance from implementation of woman rights in different fields.
• Avoidance from providing spiritual, economical and socials needs of woman
• Prevention from woman social activities.
• Decentralization on woman life‘s hardships.

The answers

First, I thank for reading my commend. The answers of your questions are as follows:

What activities are women denied to participate in?
As an answer of this question, I say that numerous types of constraint or restrictions in the society prevent women to take part in social activities.

Who is blame for irresponsibility toward women?
I shall say society because most of the communities don’t want to notice their responsibility toward women.

Decentralization on woman life‘s hardships.
I mean that there can be many people in the society who doesn’t solve women’s problems which is caused by illiterate people. About (97%) of our community are covered by illiterate people.

Non-concentration on sharing life problems of woman and its solution
According to my point of view different communities are consisted of different types of people with different attitudes. There fore, most of them don’t concern to solve women’s problems by sharing their problems, but there are some open minded people in the society who have knowledge of Islam and realize women’s problems. According to such types of people point of view, women play an essential role in the society as they consist half of society so think if their problems are not solved, the problems of half of society will remain unsolved. We hope the number of such people got increase in order to notify such social problems.

Hope the above given information is sufficient.

violence has many forms

Dear Saleha,

Thank you for sharing your insight to the common issues of violence against women that you witness in the Muslim world. I appreciate that you classify denying women of education, social and economic needs as violence. I think that often when people think of violence, they only think of physical violence. But we must look at the denial of human rights as a form of violence.

I invite you to expand on these points with the real-life examples, stories of women who have suffered these acts of violence. And I would also love to hear your ideas for addressing these issues.

Your voice, ideas and vision are so valuable to our community and we are so happy that you have joined us and shared this vital information.

In friendship,
