The Barbie Movie: Distorting the Roles of Men and Women – The Islamic Position

Shaykh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī

Men are misogynist villains. Women are feminist avengers. Western pop culture continues to try and bring down traditional family structure. What does Islām have to say about this?

[Q]: Recently a film was released based on the fictional character Barbie. The film posits women being strong only as feminists and men being futile and misogynist. How should Muslims interact with popular culture and what does Islām say about male and female roles?
