A study of sexual inequality in Muslim society. It argues that the Islamic view of women as active sexual beings resulted in a stricter regulation and control of women's sexuality, which Muslim theorists classically regarded as a threat to civilized society.

About the Author:

Fatima Mernissi was born in 1941 in Fez, Morocco, a centre of nationalist agitation at the time. She attended a school run by movement activists which accepted female students, and later studied political science in Rabat and sociology in the US. From 1973-80 she was Professor of Sociology at the University of Rabat, and has since been a member of the research centre of Mohammed V University there.

Review:

'A fascinating book.' Scotland on Sunday 'This classic work not only describes life beneath the veil but analyses it ... from within.' Tribune
