I knew, I just knew , that the Quran could not have intended for women to be oppressed. Unfortunately I have never been familiar enough about the text to be able to back my conviction with facts, quotes and references.

Shelina Zahra Janmohamed has done a great job of highlighting the true spirit and intention of the religion, and of explaining how much of so called shariat law is plain misinterpretation. For anyone interested in the details, she has referenced a paper which elaborates on the subject that she has explained so neatly.
