Talk of “women’s emancipation in communities where they are being held back by regressive cultural practices” is merely a synonym for “Muslim women need saving”. Yes, patriarchy is indeed a problem within the Muslim community, but it is by no means exceptional. On the one hand, Muslim women are required to do more to integrate, and on the other we’re paragons of victimhood. Which is it?
(SUCH an important piece responding to Casey’s - government - report which was released yesterday and which called, it seemed, for Muslim women to just do more to integrate. Just “lean in”, ladies.)
