To appreciate the absurdity of what it can mean to be a Muslim woman today you need a few fools.
Enter stage right: German judge Christa Datz-Winter, whose claim to infamy was her refusal to grant a fast-track divorce to a German Muslim woman who had complained that her husband beat her. The judge said both partners came from a “Moroccan cultural environment in which it is not uncommon for a man to exert a right of corporal punishment over his wife,” and she cited passages in the Qu’ran that she said sanction physical abuse.
This is extremely interesting, from a Muslim woman’s perspective. If only there were more like her, I would say there is hope. It’s long, but well worth the reading.
