In Women and the Koran, Anwar Hekmat challenges the mullahs who would stifle freethought and open discussion of how Muslim holy writ debases and dehumanizes women. From arranged marriages of female children (some only nine years old!) to religious laws that dictate what women can learn, how they must dress, where they may be seen in public, and with whom they may associate — virtually every aspect of their lives being controlled by an entrenched patriarchy — Hekmat insists that the Koran and those who live under its rule must re-examine this dangerous religious text and place it under the microscope of critical intelligence.
