It’s interesting to me that when you’re in those masjids where the women’s space is a balcony type deal with that one-way glass where we can look down and see the beautiful, luxurious, spacious men’s area that we are actually looking down at muslim male privilege happening.
I don’t know which I hate worse, being locked in a box upstairs where I can’t see how much better the men’s space is or when I can look down and see how much better the men’s space is. Because it’s always better. Always. The only time it isn’t better is because men and women pray in the same space and in all the masjids I’ve seen in the GTA, only one is designed like that, you know, with equal space for both genders. You will never see the a masjid where the women’s space is better than the men’s, at least in my experience. If someone has seen that, for the love of god let me know so I can go there and not feel so crappy just trying to attend a masjid for my namaaz.
Front row seats for muslim male privilege up on our closets or just feeling suffocated from all sides? These are my options as a woman in a masjid. Why are more men not angry about this? It is your wife, sister and mother stuck up in these rooms you know…

next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
