Nobel laureate Shirin Ebadi, and Biancamaria Scarcia Amoretti both condemn the use of the Islamic faith to suppress women, denouncing those who do this as “tyrants” during a meeting in Rome on women and Islam. The discussion in Rome stemmed from the presentation of Three Women: A Challenge a book which presents an interview with three Muslim women of differing generations and countries, but united by the “challenge” of Islam and its treatment of women.

The author, Marisa Paolucci, interviewed an Iranian woman, Shirin Ebadi, the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, a Sudanese woman, Fatima Ahmed Ibrahim, the first woman elected to a parliament in Africa, and Malalai Joya an Afghan woman and former parliamentarian. Three profiles, which according to the author illustrate the same thing, that women are respected in Islam. To purchase the book visit http://www.emi.it/schede/2028-2.html

 

Iranian Nobel Peace winner claims that the full-face veil is not Islamic

2003 Nobel peace prize winner Shirin Ebadi has told the French press that the full-face veil – the burqa and niqab – is not part of authentic Islamic practice. Ebadi says, “For example, if one goes on a pilgrimage to Mecca and women have their faces fully covered, the pilgrimage is not valid.”
