How Islam treats women is one of the most hotly contested questions of our times.  Islamic law is often misrepresented as a single monolithic concept, rather than a collection of different interpretations and practices.  To move the debate on Islamic law and gender forward, it is necessary to establish how Islamic law actually operates.  In this groundbreaking work, Chris Jones-Pauly explores what conditions sustain the most liberal interpretation of Islamic law on gender issues.  She examines the different interpretations, histories and practices of Islamic law in different countries.  She finds that the political independence of judicial institutions is a far more important factor than the relative conservatism of the society.  This wide-ranging book will provide new insights not only for those studying law and gender, but for anyone with an interest in Islamic societies

About the Author:

Chris Jones-Pauly, who has two doctorates in comparative and Islamic law (SOAS) and international law (Harvard), is a Human Rights Fellow at Harvard University, where she previously worked as a Professor in Islamic Law.  Before this she headed the Human Rights & Development Unit at the University of Bonn. She has worked on numerous human rights law projects with the UN.

Review:

'A unique comparative study of women in Sharia, spanning four key countries in the Muslim world. The book is unprecedented, showing how culture, history, tradition, praxis and politics shape Sharia. It is written in the best tradition of ijtihad, the methodology for adapting Sharia to changing realities. It is a must read for human rightists and politicians alike.' - Helena Kennedy, QC, Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws, Human Rights Activist; 'I believe the impressive scholastic endeavour which this book represents will prove to have made a significant contribution to a better understanding, both internationally and inter-faith, of the source and development of some of the sensitive issues relating to the status of women in Islam. I commend it as a challenging but rewarding read.' - Sir Robert Johnson, former Judge in the Family Division of the High Court of England and Wales and former Chairman of the Bar of England and Wales
