Writer addresses many aspects of Islamic treatment of women which she believes need to be addressed. I think she is right, particularly with regard to female genital mutilation. She has been criticised because Islamists in England say it is mostly a Somali habit and certainly that country has the foulness of fgm deeply embedded in its culture. But it also happens in Egypt and other Muslim countries and I would take Islamic culture/religion far more seriously if what are called moderate Muslims would themselves speak out against it. I am not sure that I could ever take any religion/culture seriously which allows a man to beat his wife.
