Fethullah Gulen’s Video Message for International Women’s Day

8 Marzo 2017

I expressed my views on women’s rights in an interview to the Muslim World journal shortly after arriving in the United States. [00:16] I view woman and man as the two sides of a unity. I view them as two different sides of a whole. Indeed, God has created them as such. But in different periods she has been limited to a life at home closed to the outer World. Sometimes tyrannical leaders have isolated them and prevented them from participating actively in social life.
