Muslim Married Women
Developing a marriage contract which were acceptable to all practicing Muslim either not married or married women was difficult due to the wide range of basic concepts that they hold about gender and marital relations.
It is believed by some that Muslim women are oppressed by their religion and are forced to cover themselves completely including the denial of education and other basic rights. Really is it true to say that Muslim women have struggled against inequality and restrictive practices in education, work force participation, and family roles.
If fact, Muslim married women have a number of rights. Married Muslim women always retained their own assets. They can specify conditions in their marriage contracts, such as the right to divorce should their husband take another wife. Also, Muslim women in many countries keep their maiden name after marriage.
