Women in Islam: The Western Experience

Sampul Depan
Psychology Press, 2001 - 339 halaman
Women in Islam investigates the ongoing debate across the Muslim world and the West on the position of women in Islam.
Anne-Sofie Roald focuses on how Islamic perceptions of women and gender change in Western Muslim communities. She shows how Islamic attitudes towards social concerns such as gender relations, female circumcision, and female dress emerge as responsive to culture and context, rather than rigid and inflexible.
