 the (in)visibilised is politicised

"[R]eviewing this history and the troubling political uses which the subject of the oppression of women in Islam is serving today, my overall conclusion then is that it is time now really that we deleted this entire subject of “the oppression of women in Islam” from our repertoire. It’s a subject that is, in reality, no more than a rhetorical device without meaning or content, a device that we’ve inherited from imperial times. It’s time to cast it aside."

— Leila Ahmed on “Treacherous Sympathy with Muslim Women”
