Discuss the relationship between Muslim women’s liberation and the veil. Conside

Discuss the relationship between Muslim women’s liberation and the veil. Consider some of the following questions in your response:
Abu-Lughod quotes Saba Mahmood as writing, “The desire for freedom and liberation is a historically situated desire whose motivational force cannot be assumed a priori, but needs to be reconsidered in light of other desires, aspirations, and capacities that inhere in a culturally and socially located subject” (“Do Muslim Women Really Need Saving?” 788). What does this mean? What are some examples? What does this mean for how we understand women and Islam, and especially the burqa/veil? How does this relate to Lama Abu Odeh’s article? If desires are socially situated, does that necessarily make them good or bad, right or wrong? Focusing on Islamic rulings and Muslim practices regarding contraceptives and the veil, how do Muslims/Islamic legal scholars balance the textual sources of Islamic law and specific social and cultural needs?
When we examine the discourse surrounding Islam in the West, how are certain depictions of Muslims used to further certain goals? Can there be any objective depiction of Islam? What does the phrase that Abu-Lughod borrows, “white men saving brown women from brown men,” mean (784)? To what is she referring? What are some examples?
