Sunday Quote: Shirin Ebadi

‘Whenever women protest and ask for their rights,

They are silenced with the argument that the laws are justified under Islam.

It is an unfounded argument;  It is not Islam at fault,

But rather the patriarchal culture that uses its own interpretations to justify whatever it wants’.

Shirin Ebadi
