9781845201982: Gender, Religion and Change in the Middle East: Two Hundred Years of History (Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Women,)

Whether religion reinforces female oppression or provides opportunities for women, or a combination of both, depends on time, place and circumstance. This book seeks to contextualize women's roles within their religious traditions rather than through the lens of a dominant culture. This book provides a comprehensive survey of women in Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities in the Middle East during the last two centuries. The authors consider women's defined roles within these religious communities, and explore how women themselves develop and apply their own strategies within religious societies. A wide-ranging account, the essays draw on case studies from Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon since 1800.

Review:

'Gender, Religion and Change offers an outstanding, original, and unified approach to understanding how Muslim, Christian, and Jewish practices and perspectives on gender and religion have intersected in the Middle East in the past two centuries and today. Comprehensive and accessible to students, scholars, and general readers alike, this book is essential reading.' Dale F. Eickelman, Dartmouth College'With current perceptions and obsessions about the Middle East and Islam, there is a real need for books like this one, which details the changing mosaic of religious communities and gender roles in the region.' Judy Mabro, author of Veiled Half Truths: Western Travellers' Perceptions of Middle Eastern Women
