Sherif Abdel Azim | Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 63 | Size: 1 MB Five years ago, I read in the Toronto Star issue of July 3, 1990 an article titled Islam is not Alone in Patriarchal Doctrines, by Gwynne Dyer. The article described the furious reactions of the participants of a conference on women and power held in Montreal to the comments of the famous Egyptian feminist Dr. Nawal Saadawi. Her politically incorrect statements included : “the most restrictive elements towards women can be found first in Judaism in the Old Testament then in Christianity and then in the Quran” “all religions are patriarchal because they stem from patriarchal societies” and “veiling of women is not a specifically Islamic practice but an ancient cultural heritage with analogies in sister religions”.
