In a recent election in Switzerland, most citizens voted to ban the construction of minarets. Among those who voted for the ban were many Swiss feminists. Claudia Pinl asks whether it is fair to label the fears Western feminists have about Islam’s view of women as xenophobic, or if those Westerners who are afraid to challenge possible sexist tendencies in Islam are merely driven by the guilt of World War II. Pinl suggests a more open discussion take place between all sides of the debate.
