Mai Yamani (ed). Illustrates how women in Islamic societies have become more actively involved not only in learning their rights under the Islamic law but in rereading this law to improve their status & gain increased equality & freedom. Surveying Iran, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, & Arab societies in general, the book brings together renowned women researchers & academics to examine the phenomenon of feminism within the Islamic cultural framework. The essays focus on: crimes of honor & the construction of gender in Arab societies; law & the desire for social control; women & entrepreneurship; family legislation; & the political strategies of feminists in the Islamic world.
