Ahmed, L.
A Quiet Revolution. The Veil`s Resurgence, for the Middle East to America
In Cairo in the 1940s, Leila Ahmed was raised by a generation of women who never dressed in the veils and headscarves their mothers and grandmothers had worn. To them, these coverings seemed irrelevant to both modern life and Islamic piety. Today, however, the majority of Muslim women throughout the Islamic world again wear the veil. Why, Ahmed asks, did this change take root so swiftly, and what does this shift mean for women, Islam, and the West? When she began her study, Ahmed assumed that the veil's return indicated a backward step for Muslim women worldwide. What she discovered, however, in the stories of British colonial officials, young Muslim feminists, Arab nationalists, pious Islamic daughters, American Muslim immigrants, violent jihadists, and peaceful Islamic activists, confounded her expectations.

Ahmed observed that Islamism, with its commitments to activism in the service of the poor and in pursuit of social justice, is the strain of Islam most easily and naturally merging with western democracies' own tradition of activism in the cause of justice and social change. It is often Islamists, even more than secular Muslims, who are at the forefront of such contemporary activist struggles as civil rights and women's rights.

Ahmed's surprising conclusions represent a near reversal of her thinking on this topic. Richly insightful, intricately drawn, and passionately argued, this absorbing story of the veil's resurgence, from Egypt through Saudi Arabia and into the West, suggests a dramatically new portrait of contemporary Islam.

Ali, K
Sexual Ethics & Islam. Feminist Reflections on Quran, Hadith, and Jurisprudence
Whether exploring the thorny issues of wives' sexual duties, divorce, homosexuality, or sex outside marriage, discussions of sexual ethics and Islam often spark heated conflict rather than reasoned argument. In this ground-breaking, lucid, and carefully constructed work, feminist Muslim scholar Dr Kecia Ali asks how one can determine what makes sex lawful and ethical in the sight of God. Drawing on both revealed and interpretative Muslim texts, Ali critiques medieval and contemporary commentators alike to produce a balanced and comprehensive study of a subject both sensitive and urgent, making this an invaluable resource for students, scholars, and interested readers.

Arib, Khadija
Allah heeft ons zo gemaakt, liefde tussen vrouwen
Wanneer de positie van vrouwen in islamitische landen ter sprake komt, denkt men bijna automatisch aan onderdrukking, tradities, geloof en achterstelling. En niet aan degenen die zich onttrekken aan alle regels en tradities – bijvoorbeeld omdat ze lesbisch zijn. Dit boek gaat over lesbische vrouwen uit Irak, Egypte en Marokko. Vrouwen die altijd wisten dat zij zich nooit zouden kunnen conformeren aan de eisen van hun ouders en hun samenleving, gewoonweg omdat zij anders zijn.

Bommel, A. van
Islam en de rechten van de vrouw. Handboek voor empowerment van moslimvrouwen, 3 delen
Steeds meer zelfbewuste moslims zijn op zoek naar antwoorden op vragen over geloof, samenleving en ethiek. Enerzijds willen zij hun leven leiden volgens de regels van de islam, anderzijds als volwaardig burger deelnemen aan de Nederlandse samenleving. Dit leidt in de praktijk regelmatig tot een confrontatie van verschillende waardensystemen. In het bijzonder moslimvrouwen ervaren bijna dagelijks dat de geleefde islam, met zijn cultureel gerelateerde tradities en gewoonten, afwijkt van de koran.
Dit handboek, dat uit drie delen bestaat, is bedoeld voor moslimvrouwen en -mannen en andere geinteresseerden als ondersteuning bij het proces van kennisontwikkeling en empowerment. Het biedt antwoorden op allerhande vragen, en het wil bijdragen aan erkenning van en respect voor de rechten en plichten van vrouwen en mannen.

In deel 1 van Islam en de rechten van vrouwen worden de bronnen van de islam en methoden van analyse van deze bronnen belicht. De lezer krijgt er inzicht in het ethische kader van de koran. Met de kennis opgedaan in deel 1 wordt de lezer in deel 2 en 3 langs meer praktische zaken geleid, zoals partnerkeuze, (gemengd) huwelijk, seksualiteit, echtscheiding, geweld, arbeidsparticipatie, identiteitsontwikkeling, onderwijs, opvoeding, en mensenrechten.

Abdulwahid van Bommel (1944) was jazzmusicus en volgde een imamopleiding in Turkije. Terug in Nederland groeide hij, eerst als imam en later als directeur van de Nederlandse Moslim Omroep, uit tot een kritisch-liberale denker en intermediair van Nederlandse en allochtone moslims.
Verder, in deel twee, bijdragen van Susan Rutten, Pauline Kruiniger, Hamied Ahmad Ali en Basharat Ahmad Ali.

Friend, T.
Woman, Man and God in Modern Islam
Award-winning historian Theodore Friend recently set out alone across Asia and the Middle East on a quest to understand firsthand the life situations of women in Indonesia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey. Woman, Man, and God in Modern Islam recounts Friend's remarkable journey and relates hundreds of encounters and conversations with people he met along the way. Commingling a deep respect for Islam and his faith in the potential of women to change their worlds, Friend presents an open, exploratory outsider's perspective on women in five very different Islamic cultures ? timely fare for all who wish to broaden their world horizons.

Haddad, Joumana
Superman is an Arab: On God, Marriage, Macho Men and Other Disastrous Inventions
This is not a manifesto against men in general. Nor is it a manifesto against Arab men in particular. It is, however, a howl in the face of a particular species of men: the macho species, Supermen, as they like to envision themselves. But Superman is a lie. In this explosive sequel to I Killed Scheherazade, Joumana Haddad examines the patriarchal system that continues to dominate in the Arab world and beyond. From monotheist religions and the concept of marriage to institutionalised machismo and widespread double standards, Joumana reflects upon the vital need for a new masculinity in these times of revolution and change in the Middle East.

Muslim Women in America: The Challenge of Islamic Identity Today
The treatment and role of women is one of the most discussed and controversial aspects of Islam. In this volume, three respected scholars of Islam survey the situation of women in Islam, focusing on how Muslim views about and experiences of gender are changing in the Western diaspora. It offers an overview of the teachings of the Qur'an and the Prophet Muhammad on gender, analyzes the ways in which the West has historically viewed Muslim women, and examines how the Muslim world has changed in response to Western critiques. The volume then centers on the Muslim experience in America, examining Muslim American analyses of gender, Muslim attempts to form a new "American" Islam, and the legal issues surrounding equal rights for Muslim females. Such specific issues as dress, marriage, child custody, and asylum are addressed. It also looks at the ways in which American Muslim women have tried to create new paradigms of Islamic womanhood and are reinterpreting the traditions apart from the males who control the mosque institutions.

Wadud, A.
Inside the Gender Jihad. Womens reform in Islam
A world-renowned professor of Islamic studies, Amina Wadud has long been at the forefront of what she calls the 'gender jihad,' the struggle for justice for women within the global Islamic community. In 2005, she made international headlines when she helped to promote new traditions by leading the Muslim Friday prayer in New York City, provoking a firestorm of media controversy and kindling charges of blasphemy among conservative Muslims worldwide. In this book Wadud brings a wealth of experience from the trenches of the jihad to make a passionate argument for gender inclusiveness in the Muslim world. Knitting together scrupulous scholarship with lessons drawn from her own experiences as a woman, she explores the array of issues facing Muslim women today, including social status, education, sexuality, and leadership
