Campaign Launch: ‘Islam – The Global Liberation Of Women’
London, UK, 14th February, 2011 – The women of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain have launched a nationwide campaign entitled, “Islam: The Global Liberation of Women”, that will culminate in a large conference in London in March. It will seek to challenge the relentless claims of Islam’s oppression of women propagated by certain Western politicians, governments, feminists, and sectors of the Western media alongside presenting Islam as a credible solution to the exploitation, abuses, and injustices women face globally under both oppressive Eastern traditions and Western liberalism.
It will seek to empower Muslim women across the country to break the lies about Islam and women and to present the truth about the status, role, and rights of women under the Islamic rule of the Khilafah state.
Dr. Nazreen Nawaz, the Women’s Media Representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain commented, “The challenge for those who habitually accuse Islam of oppressing women, is whether they are willing to engage in a sincere debate about women’s oppression that accommodates the voices of Muslim women who champion Islam as the path to their liberation, or will they simply continue a one-sided monologue on the subject and take comfort by hiding behind a flimsy veil of lies.”
