Muslim Women, Oppressed or Liberated?

Not a week goes past without some article or news story about that poor Muslim Woman who has to cover from head to toe because of men, who gets forced into marriages when they go back home and just becomes a servant of her husband and blah blah blah. I mean one of the reasons they said they went to war with Afghanistan is to liberate the women!! And if you're a sister in Hijab, I don't think you need us to tell you how difficult it gets at times. So is all that they're saying true? Is the Western woman a model to follow, are THEY really liberated or is it the Muslim Woman that's actually liberated? Come listen to the debate...

One incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute (Source: Crime in England and Wales 2006/07 report)

An estimated figure of 1.2 million women were subjected to stalking during 2003.

Each year across the UK 3 million women experience violence.

It is estimated that violence against women costs society £40 billion each year (New Philanthropy Capital).
