Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],


I was searching for the Timeline of women's rights in several websites, and I found them horribly biased. they tell us that women's rights movements and achievements started only 2 centuries ago. what they don't tell you in these articles is that they started their timeline over 1000 years late. So I made a little research to bring you the real timeline of women's rights.

Note: the following is by no means the full detailed timeline of women's rights.
.
.
.
.
:bulletred: 7th century: restoration of Islam:
- The first woman's right laws in history
- female infanticide banned.
- Raising the status of women in the society to that of the man.
- Limiting the woman's responsibilities to the functions that are fit with her nature.
- Honoring and respecting women for their role of motherhood and education.
- Restoration of women's legal rights such as the right to inherit, to wed and to divorce, to voice her opinion, to testify in the court, to own property, to do her own business...
- Women keep their maiden name after marriage.

some names:
- Khadeeja: The first Muslim after the Prophet is a woman.
- Sumayyah: The very first martyr in Islam.
- Women were involved in the formation of the Islamic State: Umm Ammara -participant in the 2nd covenant of Aqabah-
- Koaiba Bint Saad Al Aslamiyya. first nurse in Islam
- Ayesha bint Abu Bakr: scholar in hadith, jurisprudence, an educator, and an orator.
- Samra bint Nuhayk al Asadiyya - the first market inspector
- Ash Shifa bint Abdullah - skilled in medicine and public administration - appointed as administrator of the marketplace in Madina and later appointed as the head of health and safety in Basra.
and many others...

:bulletred: from the 8th century to the 18th century:
From Andalusia (Muslim Spain) to India:
- public schools spread all around Muslim lands open for boys and girls.
- 859, Fatima Al-Fihriyya founded the oldest academic degree-granting university existing today, the University of Al-Qarawiyyin in Morocco.
- There were various opportunities for female education. women could study, earn academic degrees, and qualify as scholars and teachers.

- During the Ayyubid dynasty in the 12th and 13th centuries, 160 mosques and schools were established in Damascus, 26 of which were funded by intellectual women.
- Women worked in a wide range of commercial activities and diverse occupations. in the primary sector (as farmers, for example), secondary sector (as construction workers, dyers, spinners, etc.) and tertiary sector (as investors, doctors, nurses, presidents of guilds, brokers, peddlers, lenders, scholars, government officers and ministers... etc.)
- Muslim women also held a monopoly over certain branches of the textile industry, the largest and most specialized and market-oriented industry at the time, in occupations such as spinning, dyeing, and embroidery.
- Women were an important part in Muslim hospitals all around Muslim lands. Women also worked as surgeons.
- Muslim women were fist female physicians in the world.

looking at this timeline, one can feel the hard struggle and the long time for non-Muslim and western women to get their rights back.
But Now you can have an idea as to why so many non-Muslim women, when they learn the truth about Islam, they choose to follow it...




I hope this was beneficial.
