NOT ISLAM “are impediments to gender equality”


Twenty years after a landmark U.N. conference on promoting gender equality,
the head of the agency ‘U.N. Women’ said that a growing “conservative and
extremist resistance” to equality between the sexes needs to be understood and confronted.

Neither she, nor a major report prepared for the Commission on the Status of Women
(CSW) meeting she was addressing in New York, identified radical Islamic ideology
as a leading factor, although surveys have found Muslim nations fare worst
in gender equality rankings.
