Your wonderful messages seem to have gotten some attention–if you remember from this post, the mosque in my area is in the middle of a (very long) reconstruction process, and recently they’ve announced that they were going to “fix something” about the discrepancy in the space allotted to women compared to men, because there have been various complaints.
Now I don’t really trust the committee–it was said this project itself would be complete years ago but even that hasn’t happened–and I don’t know what “changes” are really being made to the original plan, but it seems we’ve gotten some attention. There were also a couple of women who came in, saw the current situation, and left before prayers. When asked why they were leaving they replied, “You clearly don’t want us here.”
I want to thank you all again and give you A THOUSAND HUGS! I am still very bitter about this whole thing and I suspect there is more to be done, as I hypothesize this has only resulted to a merely “not as bad but still atrocious” version of the barrier because the message will not be understood clearly.
