Women's Rights in Islam and the Content of CEDAW

Mohammed Tay

Abstract


The paper sheds light on the positive role religions have played in advocating freedom. Religion liberated man from all forms of oppression, slavery and dominion, and then left to him (the man) the power to act within a general framework based on freedom. However, human beings did not remain commited to this principle, and the strong man has imposed his will over the weak. One of the expressions of such authority was man 's oppression of woman. Apparently, women's rights have been subject to most ambiguity especially in relation to the issue of equality.
