Example text

Sima, for example, remarked that her teachers often talk about the restrictions that Muslim women face in Muslim countries, and that teachers usually give the example of Afghani women. ” Sima recognizes that the situation of Afghani women does not represent an average Muslim woman’s life, and it is therefore not fair to generalize about Muslim women’s conditions. By presenting a homogeneous view of Muslim women, Sima’s professors ignore that more than half a billion Muslim women’s lives are diverse and do not conform to the Western image of Afghani women.
