the enemies of Islam are planning one abominable and vile conspiracy after the other, in order to finish off the Muslim woman and turn her into a liberated Western woman. Listen to what they ask of women. Listen to what they have in store for the Muslim woman. They demand that the Muslim woman rebel against her role as mother and wife, as well as against her religion, which oppresses her, by granting her husband guardianship [over her]....In addition, they demand that married women be allowed to travel without the permission of their husbands and that a husband who forces his wife to have sex with him be punished, because this, in their view, constitutes rape. They demand the establishment of shelters to protect raped women from their families until they give birth. Then the children would be left to the care of the people in the shelters.
