The struggle for gender equality involves women from all parts of the world. Islamic feminism is part of this global mobilization. It is an appeal that gathers women who fight to penetrate male-dominated religious authority. This book explores the research and activism of Islamic feminists, especially in the Egyptian context with a focus on Omaima Abou-Bakr, a prominent scholar and Islamic feminist. Abou-Bakr's pursuit and actions demonstrate the potential of Muslim women as "active" individuals capable of producing alternative gender-sensitive religious knowledge based on Qur'anic ethics.
