Many Muslim majority countries are found to be non-democratic or authoritarian regimes. We also have a popular notion that Islamic countries often discourage female empowerment in politics. Based on the readings of these weeks, how would you relate the Islamic countries with less female representation in office and female political participation? Do you agree with the hypothesis that it is not the religion but the regime type which is responsible for the level of female political participation? If so, why? How does a country’s culture and as well as a civil society contribute to the women’s increasing level of political participation? Provide examples of case studies from the readings of this week. Please make sure that you answer all the questions asked in the prompt and do your in-text citation.
