An Address to the Arab Muslim Women (8/32)

Not so often. Some men are exceptionally very humane.
Although sometimes it’s just the other way around,

However foolish and unbelievable that may sound.
So, cases of this kind throughout history are found.

Even if it may result in a serious crisis,
We must no longer stick to the thesis

Of the Bible's first book of 'Genesis':
"So God created man in his own image",

We shall say from now on, for change,
"So God created woman in his own image."

There’s nothing you can do except, lament and wail,
Being forced to wear this piece of cloth called veil,

As if, unlike him, you have something shameful to hide.
But you don’t; you are transparent. As outside so inside.

Let no one tell you how to behave. You need no guide.
Whether something is good or bad for you, you decide.

You do act on your own. You follow no example. You need no reference.
You do what’s right. Approved or disapproved of, it makes no difference.

You don’t want to change things. You let them take their course without interference
You accept both of them: life and death; they are the same. You have no preference.

You do what you want. You need no permission from him, no license.
Just as you no longer abide to his laws and orders, they make no sense.

State your rights firmly, surely and clearly. Don’t stutter.
You mustn’t suffer today for a supposed happy life later.

Don’t trade one for another; accept no bargain, no barter.
You need a decent life here and now not in the hereafter

Unless you act your condition won’t get any better.
No one can help you save yourselves in this matter.
