Violence Against Muslim Women Is a Societal Problem, Not a Muslim One

Trigger warning:  This video discusses violence against women.  

Muslim women are way more than just our scarves. We shouldn’t be reduced to solely speaking on Islamic issues surrounding hijab or oppression and a patriarchal society. We have much more to offer, and many more talents to put forth. We have different needs and wants that exist outside of Islam.  Ending violence against women is one such problem; it’s a societal issue, not a Muslim issue.  Watch Shaiymah Manzoor-Khan break down how this is a society-wide problem, and not a Muslim one.
