Maher to Gloria Steinem: Why Isn’t Anti-Woman Sharia Law a Bigger Feminist Issue?
Bill Maher spoke with iconic feminist Gloria Steinem tonight about a cause he thinks more feminists should care about: radical Islamic law.
He brought up how horribly women are treated in the Muslim world and asked why it isn’t a bigger feminist issue. Steinem argued that it actually is, pointing to feminists in Muslim nations attempting to push reforms.
She said that “all monotheism is a problem,” but Maher jumped in to say that Islamic nations are particularly horrible to women and bad on women’s rights.
He said, “It would seem that Sharia law in 40 countries should be the cause.”
