I was reflecting on my study of women in religion. As a re-read one of my reflection papers, I thought I would share a quote from an incredible American female Muslim scholar.
Society created differences—not religion.
“There is no distinction between the male and female with regard to individual capacity. With regard to their potential relationship with Allah, they are the same. With regard to personal aspirations, they are also the same.”
~ Amina Wadud from The Qur’anic View of Woman in This World
