Women and Islam


What is the truth about women and Islam? TV images are not always an accurate indicator of a culture or religion. While some countries practice harsh regimes, the truth about women and Islamic writings is far different than one might suspect. Muhammed empowered women with financial and educational rights never seen in the Middle East. Islamic women are professional lawyers, doctors, professors, and even special forces in the military. It’s important to understand the rapidly-changing situation. That’s why we asked Dr. Sophia Pandya of California State University in Long Beach to explain. She specializes in women, religion, and globalization. The truth is surprising.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
