Women’s rights as expressed in the Islamic Quran

In Canada, the relationship of Quebec to other provinces is that they are different but equal. In other words, both are respected, but they are not the same. One is primarily French in its culture, and one is primarily English. But both are worthy.   There is an analogy between how Canadians think of the […]
