In a part of the world where woman, from a religious standpoint, do not
share equal rights, it is mainly in these academic environments that some
semblance of equality between the sexes is manifest. As for equating
in my posting the phrase "man" and "human" the latter is meant to include
all of humanity, both male and female. Don't be so over sensitive as the
movement is probably the one religious movement which is most sensitive
to the issue of gender in the Middle East.
