They continue to be uneducated, resourceless and victimised inspite of reformative attitude of Islamic movement. The complexities of the issues involved in the status of Muslim women require multi dimensional study and action i.e., psychological, social, political, economic, educational, for shaping particular mindsets. Over the years, several scholars have produced a number of useful works. Aim of this compilation is to provide to the readers a cross section of views express on the subject and to place them thematically in proper prospective. This should enable the readers to formulate their views on the subject. There is no doubt that status of Muslim women is far from satisfactory and needs to be improved." (jacket).
