Islam feminists urge gender jihad

Here's something hopeful, it appears: Islam feminists urge gender jihad.

Islamic Feminism argues that the inferior legal and social status of women in Muslim countries is a result of misogynistic distortions of the teachings in the Koran.

Organisers say they want more collaboration with western feminists but say non-Muslim feminists need to challenge their anti-Islamic stereotypes.

Sounds like a really useful start for a conference.
