Women and Sexuality in Muslim Societies
Control of women’s sexuality remains to be one of the most powerful tools of patriarchy in most societies. The essays in this volume show that the sexual oppression of Muslim women is not the result of an ‘Islamic’ vision of sexuality, but a combination of political, social and economic inequalities throughout the ages.
However, with this context, religion is often misused as a powerful instrument of control, with the goal of legitimising violations of women’s human rights. This book brings together female researchers, academics, activists, poets, journalists and cartoonists from different countries, who illuminate various aspects of women’s sexuality with analysis, research, literature and personal accounts.
