‘When women say they want independence; people think this means we don’t want to obey our fathers, brothers or husbands.
But it does not mean that;
It means we want to make decisions for ourselves.
We want to be free to go to school or to go to work.
Nowhere is it written in the Quran that a woman should be dependent on a man.
The word has not come down from the heavens to tell us that every woman should listen to a man.’
