A few years ago, there was a time I was quite Islamophobe but in the past couple of years, I really thought about it and realized that groups like ISIS and al Qaeda do not represent Islam anymore than the Nazi's represent Christianity. So I'm trying to be more open-minded and to not lump all people together.

Have you ever felt such sudden despair that you had to take action? I know it sounds like an oxymoron, but still.

Hi ! I contact you because I would like to use your illustration "We can do it, too" for an article I'll publish on a website. We are a non profit organization, Genre en Action, dedicated to developing gender equality and feminism in the francophone countries. The website www.observaction.org is part of this project. The article I would associate your image with is an analysis of islamic feminism : www.observaction.org/feminisme…  (the french translation of this article :weekly.ahram.org.eg/2002/569/c….

 Obviously if you agree with the fact that we use your image, we would reference it in the article and join a link to this gallery. Please let me know if you need more informations on our project !

Hi, unfortunately I can't open the link to the translation. Could you tell me the gist of your article?

Hi ! 
weekly.ahram.org.eg/2002/569/c…

Is this link working ? 

The article is about "islamic feminism" and the difference between "islamic feminism" and "muslim secular feminism". 
"What is Islamic feminism? Let me offer a concise definition: it is a feminist discourse and practice articulated within an Islamic paradigm. Islamic feminism, which derives its understanding and mandate from the Qur'an, seeks rights and justice for women, and for men, in the totality of their existence. Islamic feminism is both highly contested and firmly embraced. There has been much misunderstanding, misrepresentation, and mischief concerning Islamic feminism. This new feminism has given rise simultaneously to hopes and to fears. We shall look at who is producing it, where, why and to what end."

The article suggests that islamic feminism may be more radical than traditional "muslim secular feminisms".

"
Islamic feminism on the whole is more radical than Muslims' secular feminisms have been. Islamic feminism insists on full equality of women and men across the public/private spectrum (secular feminists historically accepted the idea of equality in the public sphere and the notion of complementarianism in the private sphere). Islamic feminism argues that women may be heads of state, leaders of congregational prayer, judges, and muftis. In some Muslim majority countries, Muslim women function as judges, some as prime ministers, and one is a head of state. Thus Islamic feminism stands to benefit us all, Muslims of both sexes, as well as non-Muslims living side by side with Muslims everywhere."

It concludes, "
The distinction between (secular) feminist discourse and Islamic feminist discourse is that the latter is a feminism that is articulated within a more exclusively Islamic paradigm (but even this is complicated). This is not to suggest (or create) a binary between secular feminist and Islamic feminist discourse but rather to point to the discursive categories mobilised. There are imbrications of the secular and the religious in both discourses." 

Let me know if you consent to let us use your image. 

Thank you again for your attention,
