Are Moslem women forbidden to shake hands with men?

Dear Zambia,

The myth is that Moslem women are forbidden to shake hands with men who are not related to them.

That myth was thrown out the window yesterday. A Moslem woman, headscarf and all, shook my hand and gave me a big hug. All I did was give up my seat on the bus for her.

So you see? The myth is just that. A myth.
