How Islam and Gender roles LIBERATES women!

I cannot share this video enough. I come from a Muslim family and this is TRUE! Men in Islam take care of their women, we are free of financial obligations and MOTHERHOOD is respected. That is female liberation. It embraces what a female is, it embraces the capabilities of females. It liberates females to be mothers and to serve society in that way. Yes men are the head of the household but that is not a bad thing and that does not mean that women are not equal to men in this system. Both sexes are valued and their strengths are used to make society function. Both sexes are equal in this system.

That being said extreme gender roles is also not ideal; it’s about balance. But Islamic culture is a form of liberation for many, many women!
