Islamophobia and Feminism in America

ANSWER


Feminism can be defined as a social movement that calls for equal rights for women either politically, socially or economically mostly in public arenas. It is a call for equal treatment of women with their male counterparts. The year 1920 marked a major milestone to the fate of women suffrage rights when the ban for voting was lifted to make them actively participate in politics. Since then, there has been tremendous increase of women movements championing for more rights in America. Women had long been discriminated from main stream economy by their male counter parts.  Women movements rose up to the challenge to show the world that they had equal capacity of participating actively in national issues like their male counterparts giving rise to feminism. Islamic phobia is the general feeling of the insecurity with Muslim population in the United States of America.  Islamophobia is manifested in many ways during major social interactions between Muslim population and Americans. Some refer islamophobia as an irrational fear while others hold to the opinion that, Islam religion is characterized with violence and terror. Mostly, islamophobia is preached by elites who argue that, for secure world slams have to be checked lest world would be in havoc. It is belief that has been accepted by most Americans hence eliciting fear of unknown when interacting with Muslims. Muslims have being associated with matters of insecurity to the state this association is what is believed to be the major contributor to islamophobia.   The essay is guided by the thesis that, feminism has reached crescendo of achievements while on the other hand, islamophobia is a giant of a problem which may not be fully addressed in future.   (Sandra 427)
