I hope you are enjoying the memoir “Infidel” I can understand Ms Ali wanting women to have a voice in every aspects of their lives. The problem is that the men are taught that women are at their disposal at any cost. I wonder how can the issue be raised for women to take a “stand”, but what about educating men to respect women. That is the root of the problem.
IYBC what is your opinion on women being “covered” so that men will not be sexually aroused. Does this really stop men? I would think it would make them more curious.
IYBC why do you think that men feel they must control the women at any cost? what do you think their fear is? Do you think that the “culture” is really a “smoke screen ” for fear”? Maybe the men are intimidated by the women? but why???
