Quite a bit has been happening lately.
Bahraini woman Ayat al-Qurmezi has been sentenced to jail time for writing and reading poetry that "incited hatred against the regime."
A Kuwaiti woman who burned down her husband's wedding tent when he tried to marry a second wife, which killed 57 women and children, has been sentenced to death.
A Pakistani-American who became a weight-lifter is trying to get permission to compete in the hijab. Weight-lifters usually wear form-fitting clothing, but she can't, for religious reasons.
In a previous post I discussed how Muslim women are trying to compete in beauty pageants and I mentioned Miss Turkey and a woman who hopes to be Miss UK. I just wanted to point out that the current Miss USA is a Muslim woman originally from Lebanon.
