An Open Doors report about gender issues in persecution found that the strict interpretation of Islam observed in the Maldives means there is little difference between the persecution experienced by men or women. However, they did report that abuse, rape and sexual harassment are quite common and experienced by Muslim and Christian women alike.

Pray for women to encounter the gentle love of God, winning their hearts to follow the One who puts their feet on solid ground (The Bible, Psalm 40:2).
