Western leftists need to stop supporting Islam’s regressive elements

At an Ontario writers’ group gathering last Saturday, many issues were raised by members of the audience on the rights of women in Islam, how women are treated within the different strains of Islam and how Western women can help not only in alleviating the lot of Muslim women, but also making sure that Muslim women themselves recognize that there is indeed a problem in the way orthodoxy treats them.

Out of that discussion arose a consensus on many points, and some polite disagreement.
