4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview of Feminism in Islam - no in dept analysis, 3 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Badran's Feminism in Islam gives a good overview of how Feminism had developed historically in the Middle East, with reference to Egypt. She engage in a debate that aims to test the convergence between the two feminist movements, religious and secular, over time.
However, if you are looking for an in depth explanation of how Religious believes inpact on Islamic feminisms, this rests rather superficial.
