Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThese essays by leading Islamic women scholars in North America give voice to and are evidence of the growing network of Muslim women involved with the issues of women's human rights through "scholarship activism." Gisela Webb brings together critical arguments for the existence of religious mandates within the core scripture and teaching of Islam for the fair treatment of women.This book is the basis for the history of Islamic women's jurisprudence and a major landmark in the history of modern interpretations of Islam. It attends to what many observers, both inside and outside of Islam, regard as the most important development in the Islamic world today. Although Islamic fundamentalism garners more media attention because it is more sensational and sound-byte friendly, issues associated with women's roles in Islam are in the forefront of Islamic discussion and reform today.
