What is the truth about women and Islam? TV images are not always an accurate indicator of a culture or religion.

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.
