Imam-Khatib Woman Lost the Pulpit

  • Ikhwan , Bakhtiar and AzhariahFatia


The position of women besides being vulnerable to delegation can also be transferred to
the hands of men. Women as preachers and preachers, as found in West Sumatra, lost their
position being replaced by men. This phenomenon is inseparable from the development of
religious thought patterns and dialectical models of the Islamic law that are not friendly to
social change. As a result, women are excluded from positions and roles they have inherited
for a long time. This phenomenon confirms that the interpretation of religion is one of the
factors causing gender inequality
