Inside a Muslim Home

1999 Vol. 3: May/June

The television camera panned the crowd of lively concert goers, all of whom were chanting and waving banners as they waited for their idols to appear on stage. I searched my screen for a female face. All ages, from 10-year-olds to their grandfathers, were represented at this particular concert--but they wee almost all male. If you go out to dinner in that same city, or to a ball game, you will find almost the same situation: it is the men and boys who go out in public. The women and girls gather at home for their entertainment.
