We’ve heard that crap before:
Waleed Aly’s wife Susan Carland insists Islam is compatible with feminism.
The Muslim-convert academic, who is married to the host of The Project, also described as ‘lazy’ the suggestion women were oppressed in Islam.
In an interview with the Diversity Council of Australia, Dr Carland declared Islam was a feminist religion.
‘I don’t really feel a sense of contradiction,’ she said.

Spare me the BS!
‘There are 1.6 billion ways to be Muslim’: Waleed Aly’s wife Susan Carland insists Islam and feminism ARE compatible – after arguing Sharia law could be used to promote women’s rights
- Muslim convert academic Susan Carland said Islam compatible with feminism
- Wife of The Project’s Waleed Aly said there was no ‘contradiction’ between two
- Her observation came after 29 women were arrested in Iran removing hijabs
While women in Iran are protesting against being forced to wear the hijab, Dr Carland argues there are versions of Islam that are compatible with feminism
‘But I guess the thing to keep in mind is that feminism is a very broad church.
‘There are many different approaches to feminism.
‘Similarly, with Muslims. There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and there are 1.6 billion ways to be Muslim.’
Dr Carland, who is based at Melbourne’s Monash University, described as a ‘lazy trope’ the idea that Islam was inherently hostile to women, adding people should switch off their TVs and instead speak to Muslim women.
While Muslim women are often free to express their faith in Australia, the story is very different in Iran where 29 women were arrested earlier this month in Tehran for removing their hijabs in protest at oppressive modesty laws in the Islamic theocracy.
The dress code of women is also heavily policed in the Indonesian province of Aceh, which operates under a strict Islamic Sharia law legal system where people are flogged for adultery.
Dr Carland last year argued Sharia law could be used to promote women’s rights during a launch in Sydney of her book ‘Fighting Hislam: Women, Faith and Sexism’.
The hijab-wearing writer argued an American lawyer had used sharia law to criticise Pakistan’s punishment for adultery and having sex outside of marriage.
‘For those of you that don’t know, if a woman is raped she can be punished for adultery,’ Dr Carland said.
‘The woman I interviewed said, “I could go to them with these human rights justifications for why it’s wrong but I know that if I do that, they will double down on this law because they will feel it’s an insult to their culture and their tradition and their religion’, so she said, “Why would I just not use the sharia to make the argument this is wrong?”.’
People, that twat has more than a few screws loose.
‘You can have Islamic feminism’: Waleed Aly’s wife Susan Carland DEFENDS Sharia law as the best way to convince Muslim men that rape victims are not guilty of adultery
- Muslim convert academic Dr Susan Carland says sharia law can help rape victim
- Wife of The Project’s Waleed Aly was promoting a book in Sydney’s inner west
- She told her audience feminism existed in Islam and not just in the secular West
A Muslim-convert academic married to The Project‘s Waleed Aly says sharia law can be used to promote women’s rights.
Dr Susan Carland told an audience including feminist Eva Cox in Sydney‘s inner-west that a hardline, Islamic legal system was compatible with feminist goals.
Promoting her new book ‘Fighting Hislam: Women, Faith and Sexism’, the Monash University lecturer said sharia law could be used to persuade Muslim men that it was wrong to stone or lash women for adultery who had been raped.
