Women Rights in the Glorious Qur'an : A Sociolinguistic Study
Keywords:Women's rights, Type, equality
This research aims to study the concept of women's rights in the Holy Quran. The study will focus on how the concepts of language and gender are manifested, especially in the verses that talk about women's rights. In addition, the study attempts to answer the following question: Does the language of the Holy Qur’an reflect the physical and biological sex of males and females, or does it mainly emphasize their social and personal identity, i.e. gender? Do women's rights in the Holy Book reflect the man's authority over them? As the study is divided into two parts, the first chapter is an overview of three topics: gender, differences between males and females in the use of language and women's rights. The second chapter is devoted to women's rights in the Holy Qur'an. Important points were concluded in the Qur’anic text regarding the social dimension of women’s rights and their linguistic dimensions, the most important of which is that the Holy Book did not neglect the use of linguistic tools that refer to linguistic, grammatical and semantic femininity.
