عنوان مقاله [English]
Throughout history, women have always been ignored, and their independent identities have been subject to damages worse than the physical abuse by the social systems governing different societies. Although there have been some attempts to improve the status of women, there has been no significant change in this regard and their inferior status has continued as there has seldom been any attempt focusing on reviving woman’s dignity. During the movement of monotheism, the leaders have paid more attention to the restoration of the personality and independence of people, with the aim of breaking with the deviated and sorrowful status of this world and going toward God. Moreover, feeling secure, in terms of existence, away from being female or male, is being pursued so as to make way for presence which is a prominent feature of human in everyday social activities. Among numerous acts against misogyny, the act of the Prophet (pbuh) in his time against misogynous social contracts was a giant stride forward. Furthermore, if women had wanted to disobey those contracts, they would have faced much anxiety and depression so that they would have lost their motivation in taking part in social activities. Therefore, the prophet (pbuh) was able to pave the way for respecting women in its best way by kissing his daughter’s hand, respecting his wife, accepting economic independence of the women, etc. This proved that not only should not woman be looked down, but also they should be looked up so as they will be able to take part in social activities more confidently.
