In Search of Islamic Feminism by Elizabeth Warnock Fernea

$ 11.00

In Search of Islamic Feminism offers a ground-breaking new interpretation of the status and vision of Muslim women, opening up a new world to readers even as it challenges our sense of what feminism means. Based on fieldwork in Uzbekistan, Morocco, Kuwait, Turkey, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Israel/Palestine, and the U.S., Fernea shows that Muslim women's reactions to the issues of feminism are diverse and unpredictable, and that these women, regardless of social status, are anything but passive. This book is an important corrective to the West's myopic vision of "the Muslim woman".
