...Muslim societies, many of these societies rely upon tribal law and gender traditions to determine particular power structures. The consequence of this is that in a number of Muslim societies women are explicitly identified as being inferior to men and, accordingly, are forced to occupy purely subservient positions. Of course, violence against women has been recognized as a global pandemic, which is not at all exclusive to the Islamic world: "The situation has lead public health experts to consider violence against women a global public health issue, one requiring a public health approach."1 Domestic abuse is common across virtually all cultures...

The pain and the anguish to which they are exposed is the same. The differentiation lies more in the feminist and male dominant society rather than the geographical region.

...Muslim society? Since the pre-modern era, Muslim society has maintained a strong standregarding gender-based issues that seemed to bring confusion in the community (Razack 23). This entailed specifying clearly diverse rights encompassing both genders coupled with certain areas and rituals where they best applied. Islam mainly draws its guidance from Qur’an whose teachings normally regard men and women as equal before God and no one is a derivative of the other (Keshavjee 113). However, during prayers, the worship doctrines disregard the service of a woman being an Imam. For the past 150 years, Muslim society has undergone tremendous changes fueled by the emergence...

...society: Should Muslim women be allowed to dress accordingto the teachings of Islam in the workplace? In many advanced countries, Muslim women are disallowed to dress themselves up in accordance with the instructions of Islam which is their religion.

In addition to that, women who cover their bodies according to the teachings of Islam can not be interacted with in a way that the uncovered women can be talked to.
