THIS

WHERE IS THIS FROM ?

It’s from “la source des femmes”

IT’S TRUE.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE QU’RAN THAT SAYS WOMEN’S SOLE PURPOSE IS FOR OBEYING AND PROCREATING.

We are allowed to inherit and own property and businesses, and we are allowed to CHOOSE our husbands instead of having them foisted upon us in arranged marriages. WE ARE ALSO ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN COMBAT.

I’ve read the Qu’ran COVER TO COVER and there’s nothing God says about women being LESS than men. In fact, God IMPLORES men to treat women as equals. Probably because God knew men have a tendency to foul things up and has to remind them that WOMEN ARE ALSO PRECIOUS CREATIONS OF HIS DIVINE WILL.

Sorry. I was in my feelings. But this touches my nerves a lot when people misinterpret Islam as some misogynistic religion. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I took a Women’s Memoir course in college, and we covered two books by women of the Islamic religion. We also did research, and read the Qu’ran, and no, there is nothing about women supposed to be inferior, but the tribesmen were the ones who taught it, men were the ones who could read, and therefore they misinterpreted it. But women there are becoming educated, and I see a tide change coming.

Dress rehearsals for ‘Duel Sex’, a performance about the duality of society. We praise beauty but when something bad happens to someone beautiful, society turns their back on that person and even blames that person for the bad that happened. This bad is anything from theft, harassment, getting cheated on, rape, beat up, car crashes, fires, and even death. This bad happens to all people, men and women alike, young and old, rich and poor. Once a person is deemed “beautiful” by society, there will always be a double edge sword to that word.
Our performance is focused more on the physical bad things that can happen and yes, we have both a male and female performers, performing to the same poem, because victim shaming has no gender specificity.
