Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teaser: I’m reading Muslim Woman Reformers and almost every page there are sentences that make you stop for a second and marvel at the courage of these women. Here is one of them.
My hands are empty but I want to prove that a woman with empty hands can do a lot. It will be a lesson for all the women of Afghanistan. Already five thousand years, we women have waited for our turn. We cannot wait another century (Pg 38)

Those are certainly some strong, compelling teaser lines.
The book synopsis is a hard-hitting, eye-opener and that’s without needing to turn the first page.
To me, it not only serves to reinforce the oppression that many Islamic women endure, but also echoes my own belief, that any religion can be interpreted in many different ways and can be manipulated by any group or individual, to suit their own agenda and despotic goals.
There are many people of differing faiths, all around the world, who suffer such repression, all in the name of religion!
That is a strong line! I feel sorry for Women in Afghanistan as they treated their women unlike what Al-Quran had told them. I”m lucky to be a Muslim woman in Indonesia as I can do anything I want as long as it is not against Good”s rules and that rules apply for both men and women.
I didn’t know this kind of book exist,I want to read it too.
Mine is here
