Following the birth of Islamic feminism at the end of the twentieth century, the idea of gender equality – inherent to our contemporary conceptions of justice – has presented a challenge to established, patriarchal interpretations of Shari‘a law.
Through a series of thoughtful, enlightening conversations, Ziba Mir-Hosseini explores journeys towards gender equality in Islam with six influential Muslim intellectuals – Abdullahi An-Na’im, amina wadud, Asma Lamrabet, Khaled Abou El Fadl, Mohsen Kadivar and Sedigheh Vasmaghi. Beginning from the premise that the Qur’an indicates the path toward justice, rather than a precise definition of justice, they discuss how new forms of scholarship and activism are speaking to gender equality from within the Islamic legal framework.
