Hey! It’s the pixiechick here!
Thank you so much for this post. I have to disagree with that Palestinian-Jordan woman. In the Qur’an it states that women and men are equal in the eyes of Allah, and that is true. The reason women have a Walee is not because women are weak; it is because men can be manipulative and abusive. Women can easily be taken advantage of, but NOT because we’re weak (which we are not), it’s because men have the ability steal our innocence and ruin lives and families. Tell that Palestinian-Jordan woman to read A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Housseni and try to tell me women are weak!
