Muslim women can be religious leaders: study
by Lyssandra Sears
A new Swiss study has found that some Muslim women have more say in their communities than many Christian or Jewish women.
Researchers from the National Science Foundation wanted to know which women had the option of taking on leadership roles within their religious communities.
The results obtained by Sunday newspaper SonntagsBlick, found that while some Islamic groups were conservative, many others were surprisingly liberal.
