Veiled Superheroes: Islam, Feminism, and Popular Culture (Lexington Books, ) by Sophia Rose Arjana (with Kim Fox), takes us on a riveting journey through the world of superheroes and villains from the streets of New York to Pakistan. However, Islamic intellectual encounters with feminism date back to the early twentieth century. Beginning with a historical sketch of Islamic responses to feminism, this article provides an outline of 'Islamic feminist' claims, and a critique of the theory and politics of feminisms based on Islamic approaches to gender relations.

Feminism is a long history of struggle and sacrifice. The first wave was about legal and educational equality steering through a successful suffragette movement. The second wave encouraged by the World Wars broaden the debate to sexual politics and reproductive rights leading to theoretical discussions on “power structured relationships.   But that’s not all “feminism” is, all that the word signifies. As I argue in my book Being Muslim: A Cultural History of Women of Color in American Islam, women of color—namely Black women.

Islamic feminism is defined by Islamic scholars as being more radical than secular feminism, and as being anchored within the discourse of Islam with the Quran as its central text.

[4] During recent times, the concept of Islamic feminism has grown further with Islamic groups looking to garner support from many aspects of society. ‘Islamic feminism’ is a relatively recent current of thought being developed by a transnational network of activists in widely contrasting socio-political contexts.1 Islamic feminists are concerned with developing an ethical reading of the bases of Islam, namely the Qur’an and the Sunna, in order to find a form of religious exegesis that will support their feminist viewpoint.

Feminism and Islam: Legal and Literary Perspectives is the title of Saudi scholar Mai Yamani's book comprising the essays of a substantial number of women scholars who are articulating an emerging Islamic feminism.

Global forces include Dutch colonialism, developmentalism, transnational feminism, and the United Nations’ institutional bodies and their : Etin Anwar. Mernissi was of the same generation as the Egyptian feminist writer Nawal El Saadwai, and the two of them really put second-wave feminism on the map in the Middle East.

But in Mernissi published a book, which in one English edition is called The Veil and the Male Elite: A Feminist Interpretation of Women’s Rights in Islam. Conclusion:The Islamic Struggle Against Feminism. The brief points made above, though sketchy, should be sufficient to show that the incompatibility of Islam with feminism is profound.

It is not just a disagreement about how Islamic law is to be interpreted or what sort of. Islam and feminism are not mutually exclusive, and faith can be an important liberator pm EDT.

To order a copy go to or call   Islamic feminist discourse had been circulating for a good decade by then and provided ready answers-back to the slurs and diatribes about “women in Islam.” While falling into apologetics may be understandable, Islamic feminism is not about defending Islam but about defending women and gender equality and justice within Islam.

This book describes Fernea's personal quest for Islamic feminism throughout the Middle East. Each chapter describes her experiences in a different s: 5. Lamrabet has written five books about Islamic feminism and they are absolutely powerful, recommended reads.

Zainah Anwar. A Malaysian feminist, Zainah founded a civil society organization called Sisters In Islam (SIS) in Malaysia, that focused on Islamic law pertaining to women rights and Family Law in Malaysia. Islamic feminism is generally grounded in the Quran and Islamic prac- tice, and is articulated predominantly (though not exclusively) within an Islamic paradigm (Badran).

Fatema Mernissi and Islamic Feminism Fatema Mernissi’s ( –) work explores the relationship between sexual ideology, gender identity, sociopolitical organization, and the status of women in Islam; her special focus, however, is Moroccan society and culture.

And perhaps given the topic and the ethnicity of the author, this was the only possible approach for a book exploring these questions. Fernea presents few clear conclusions in her search for Islamic feminism. Those generalities that are mentioned come mostly from the Reviews: 5. What is feminism.

What does it have in common with Islam. What is the position of the Islamic law regarding the feminist issues. What is considered oppression from Islamic point of view. The present book will answer all the above mentioned questions and at the same time it will clarify the role of the women in Islam.

This book is also a good source of information and logical. Below is a list of books that I recommend to anyone interested in understanding re-interpretations of Islam, alternative readings to the traditionalist ones that are largely patriarchal in nature, or otherwise scholarship that complicate simplified ideas of Islam, women, gender, and sexuality.

These books may be a response to western, orientalist images of gender issues. Malaysian Islamic feminists have not faced much resistance from the government; indeed, when Sisters in Islam was founded, Mahathir bin Mohamad, Malaysia’s prime minister at the time, expressed.
