This edition of The Mark Steyn Show was recorded before the bloodbath in Manchester, when a Soldier of Allah consciously targeted mothers and young girls for violent, savage murder. But we think you'll find this conversation on women and Islam interesting and timely. Mark talks to poet and Muslim activist Raheel Raza, about the proliferation of covered females in the west, the possibilities of Islamic reform and other topics - though, at the end of another grim week, what may resonate most is his question about whether, for westerners, Islam, reformed or not, is worth the effort.

The Mark Steyn Show is made possible through the support of Founding Members of The Mark Steyn Club. Founder Membership is not for everyone, but it does help assure that our content remains out there for everyone, around the world. It's available only for a limited time - until next Wednesday, May 31st - and if you'd like to find out more about it, please see here.
Among the benefits of Founder Membership is that you can enjoy The Mark Steyn Show in any medium you desire: video, audio or text. So, if you find Steyn more palatable in non-visual form, please log-in to our Audio and Transcript versions. To listen to the above show, simply click here.
Mark will be back on air tonight for another episode of our radio serialization of Conan Doyle's The Tragedy of the Korosko - and on TV on Friday with Elizabeth MacDonald on Fox Business, live at 5pm Eastern/2pm Pacific.
Another advantage of Founder Membership is our comments section. If you're a member and you take issue with anything Mark or Raheel said on the show, then feel free to comment away below. (Mark himself even pipes up there once in a while, as he does in response to Patrick Archer here.)
