Rethinking Muslim Women and the Veil: Challenging Historical & Modern Stereotypes

$18.95 USD

This book offers a powerful critique of the Western notion that the hijab, the veil, is a symbol of Muslim women’s oppression. The author examines the views of feminist scholars who offer a variety of interpretations of the Islamic guidelines regarding hijab and discusses the view that women only wear hijab because they are being subjugated by men.
