Identity politics refers to discourses and movements organized around questions of religious, ethnic and national identity. This work focuses on political-cultural movements that are making a bid for state power, for fundamental juridical change, or for cultural hegemony. In particular, the contributors explore the relationships between culture, identity and women, providing illustrations from around the world of the compelling nature of "woman" as cultural symbol and as political pawn in male-directed power struggles. The book includes 13 case-studies spanning Muslim, Christian, Jewish and Hindu countries and communities.
