In Search of Islamic Feminism : One Woman's Global Journey

by Fernea, Elizabeth Warnock

Condition: Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket

Doubleday. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 1997. Hardcover. 0385475187 . Near fine. Pages; xvi, 1-430. Illustrated. "Feminism, like democracy, is not an easy sell in many parts of the world, especially in traditional societies with autocratic regimes. However, feminism today enjoys an advantage in that it can adapt to local cultural forms and practices; hence the author's concept of Islamic feminism. Here she sets out to answer basic yet sometimes complex questions about Middle Eastern women: their predicament, what feminism means to them, whether its ideas are helpful, and the alternatives in traditional societies. The last chapter is on Muslim women in the United States. Although the author states in conclusion that Islamic feminism seems to her to be alive and well in the countries she visited, gender equality is still a long way off. Highly recommended for all libraries and essential for women's studies collections." Libary Journal review. ; 9.30 X 6.30 X 1.50 inches; 448 pages .
