The issue of the veil has come to represent the essence of Islam, not only to the West, but also to Muslim Conservatives and Fundamentalists. To some in the West, the veil represents repression and constriction of women’s freedom and choice, limiting their capacity for self-determination. However, some Muslims would argue that women must veil because it is a first step towards restoring true Islam and a defiance against the West Interventionist policies (Lazreg, Why Women Should Not Wear the Veil, pg. 113). Additionally, the idea of freedom as the ultimate value, is a western standard and that for some, piety is more important.
In 1939, Reza Shah’s unveiling declaration sparked a worldwide debate as to what the veil actually symbolizes. Ever since the beginning of Islam, women throughout the Islamic world have had to adopt the hijab as part of their cultural and religious attire due to various interpretations of the Islamic dress code. In addition, the Koran emphasizes purity in the name of Islam by asking both men and women to be modest when it comes to the way they dress. Furthermore, in his efforts to modernize Iran, Reza Shah failed to satisfy the needs of his people, as he gave women no say in what they could and could not wear in public. This eventually resulted in the division of Iranian women, as there were those who favored the Islamic tradition, and those who supported the regime and its adoption of Western values.
The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamic religious, political and social movement founded in March 1928 in Egypt. There are women within the Muslim Brotherhood who support religion being at the forefront of politics and who are heavily involved in advancement of the organizations integration into the political and private spheres of life in Egypt. Women who are a part of the Muslim Brotherhood participated in the Arab Spring, fighting to end poverty, state corruption, police brutality and rigged elections. Other women are completely against what the Muslim Brotherhood is for, and is worried that the Islamist group infringes on women’s rights. This is just one example of how diverse the kind of women involved in the Arab Spring were - their ideological views and reasonings for their involvement varied immensely.
Race and gender are two major characteristics that are discussed when justice is brought up. In the court system, there is always high controversy between the Caucasians and African Americans. It is now the norm to turn on the television and hear about protesting, whether it’s Caucasians protesting against the African Americans or vice versa. This has become a major social problem and it’s only getting worse. I believe that the color of one’s skin nor gender should determine the amount of trouble he or she should be in.
Indeed, the Burqa is used to promote a religious radicalism within the France. The burqa imprisons women in an Islamic fanaticism which provokes disdain for others. In fact, the Muslim feminist, Fadela Amara mentioned about the burqa ban, “it was necessary to fight the gangrene, the cancer of radical Islam which completely distorts the message of Islam” (“French minister urges Burka ban”, BBC ). Therefore, from her message, the burqa is a tool used to alter Islam and to fight against western principles through hiding behind religion. Hence, women who wear it are indirectly promoting an extremist Islam which leads to an excessive advocacy for a non-authentic and radical Islam.
Culture is about learning how a certain group of people are by sharing ideas, beliefs, and values. They characterize themselves as unique and special because of their unique culture. Moreover, we view the world through a racial lens that portrays the world as colors such as black, brown, white, yellow and more. The way people view groups of different people based on the color of their skin, ancestral origin, or their cultural upbringing have generated stratification between certain groups of people. Our world now has so much hate and has even experienced growing numbers of terrorism because they want to make right what they construe is socially or politically wrong.
Meaning if a person injures or kills someone they should receive the same or worst punishment for them to learn from their mistakes. However because of this, this has caused many innocent people to be executed. The people that oppose the death penalty have many reasons on why they believe it is wrong and that is including one of them. Senate Judiciary Committee, is suggesting as an alternative "a real life sentence" for murder and "heinous crimes." Instead of putting these criminals that “ Deserve the death penalty to be executed sentence them life without parole.
Media are everywhere, from newspaper to cinema. General public are influencing by reading news or watching movies. Media is a powerful weapon to change people’s minds. The more people read or watch, their beliefs, views, opinions will be affected. Racial representation in media has developed the views of society toward different nationalities, religious and coloured skin human.
If the peacekeepers aren’t keeping the peace, then the reasoning for having a position of power is null.

There are many standards defining and measuring a culture, some of these are obvious from one culture to another and others need some analysis before recognizing them. Two of these traits are collectivism and individualism, which differ greatly from country to country and culture to culture. In addition to defining those, the possibility of coexistence of the two traits will be examined. First, collectivism simply defined is the idea of everyone being a part of a larger group and all behavior stemming from this. More specifically, collectivism includes looking at the needs of those in your group before looking at your own, readiness to cooperate with your group, shared beliefs, and happiness based on the welfare of those around you.
That maybe what they believe but in my opinion, it 's certainly not true. It 's how they have been portrayed or stereotyped in the media. The media has and will distort the truth. The book, "Bias," written by Bernard Goldberg, exposed how the media distort the news. Social media and cellphones has exposed the ones responsible for these senseless murders.
One of Nomani most famous quotes is "Intolerance toward women is like the canary in the coal mine for intolerance toward other people," "When you allow sexism to go unchallenged, you allow bin Laden-type mentalities to go unchallenged. That 's why it 's so vital that the expression of Islam in the world be one that is completely affirming of women 's rights,” (Beiser, Vince, Asra Nomani). Nomani embarked upon a far more aggressive goal which was working with other activists to develop a whole new social movement within Islam. They wanted to develop a movement that respects the Koran but reads the Islamic law correctly and does not
She does this through Azar Nafisi’s Reading Lolita in Tehran instead of Satrapi’s Persepolis, but the subject of her essay applies to both memoirs. In Zalipour’s words, “the diversity of semantics of the veil for Muslim women can be traced not in the religion per se, but in the dominant cultural and social values, beliefs, regimes, or the effect of modernity and westernization” (2). The veil means something different for everyone who wears it. It doesn’t always define the religion of the woman wearing it, but instead reveals her social beliefs and values. In Persepolis, however; when women were forced to wear the veil, how it was worn was more of an indicator of a woman’s values.
She even cried so they freed her to go home, I conclude that they had a bit of sympathy left in them. These frames reflect the theme of being a women and femininity, they had strict guidelines to what they could and couldn 't wear mainly the veil, which was not an option. The committee felt that westernized clothing was too revealing and lead to lustful stares from men so they wore veils and clothing that literally covered their whole body, which soon became apart of their culture. (Even today, Muslim woman still wear the veils and complete coverage clothing) By all means, Muslims disagreed with all of western cultures and tried their hardest to keep it out of Tehran. This frame was Satrapi 's first encounter with the guardians, it goes to show that it 's very dangerous out in Tehran for women and that if you don 't follow the dress code expectation as a women it could lead to you being reprimanded by the government, then, as well as now it isn 't too good.
