I took the kids to a festival this weekend and we really learned a lot! I especially enjoyed the booth by the WhyIslam group - that answers many questions I had about Islam.

I really liked the information they gave about equity of women and men in Islam - and I could see that Mohammed gave women much greater respect than they'd ever had before in that part of the world. It was really revolutionary.

It's interesting, as well, because the Muslim women I know personally are all very strong, smart, and able women. So I found that particularly interesting.
