The Rights of Women

  • Sayyid Ahmad Khan

Abstract

Developed countries loudly proclaim that men and women are created equal and that both hold equal rights. They also proclaim that there is no reason why women should be thought of as less important or less worthy of respect than men. They do not even accept that, by way of illustration, it can be said that a woman is like the left hand and a man the right hand, or that in value a woman adds up to 12 and a man to a dozen. Nevertheless, even today we observe that in no developed country have women been bestowed with the same stature and parity in rights and authority to men as has been bestowed upon them in the religion of Islam. England greatly favors the freedom of women, yet when its laws relating to women are examined, it is obvious that the English consider women quite insignificant, unintelligent, and valueless.
