Many of the prominent Muslim Feminist out there advocate for the rejection of hadith, they advocate for the re-writing or re-interpretation of the Qur'an, so in that way your not proving that Islam and Feminism are 'compatible', your saying that they are incompatible and what we need to do is 'reform' Islam

In this fascinating video, Nour Goda talks about women’s rights under an Islamic paradigm and how it differs from ‘feminism’.
