The email below was sent to a list that calls itself “Islam Female Leadership.” It calls for contributions from “scholars” (i.e., politically correct dhimmi pseudo-academics) to the Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Women of Oxford Islamic Studies.
The list below of “topics requiring scholarship” is drastically incomplete, don’t you think? Doesn’t the Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Women need contributions about honor killing (not just “honor”), female genital mutilation, divinely-sanctioned wife-beating, child marriage, talaq divorce, the devaluing of women’s testimony, the inequality of women’s inheritance rights, and all the other injustices that women must endure under Islamic law?
If you have an idea for a paper, write in (politely and calmly) to Anne Whittaker, asking her if the Oxford Encyclopedia of Islam and Women is going to cover these issues revolving around the institutionalized oppression of women in Islam, and if not, why not?
