It also reads that unfortunately, we are not implementing the golden principle of Islam in our lives. “There is a tendency in society to deprive women of their rights and it is up to every individual to educate herself/himself on Islamic history so that she/he can be disabused of false perceptions about the Islamic religion.” 
“One thing is clear and that is that people who “represent” Islam are very disparate from the religion itself. The dream of prosperity could not be materialized without the development of women.” (KNS)
