    Harassment, Seclusion and the Status of Women in the Workplace: An Islamic and International Human Rights Perspective.Sarah Balto - 2020 - Muslim World Journal of Human Rights 17 (1):65-88.
    Since the mid-nineteenth century, women in Europe, North America and elsewhere have played an increasing role in the workforce. Women started pursuing jobs in factories, offices and businesses instead of being dependent on men for their livelihood.

    Win the Battle, Lose the War?: Strategies for Repealing the Zina Ordinance in Pakistan.Beenish Riaz - 2020 - Muslim World Journal of Human Rights 17 (1):89-103.
    In 1979, following a military coup, President Zia-ul-Haq sought to foment his power by ‘Islamizing’ Pakistan. Among other policies, he enacted the Hudood Ordinances to codify classical Islamic fiqh on criminal law, including the controversial Zina Ordinance which criminalizes sex outside of marriage. Shortly after its passing, the Ordinance led to the unjust incarceration of thousands of low-income women across the country. Decrying the law as violence against women, human rights supporters around the world demanded reform. Finally, in 2006, Pakistan (...)
