Title: Fighting hislam : women, faith and sexism
Authors: Carland, Susan
Keywords: Islam;Religion;Sexism;Muslim women;Australia;Feminism;Social attitudes
Year: 2017
Publisher: Melbourne University Press
Notes:  "The Muslim community that is portrayed to the West is a misogynist's playground; within the Muslim community, feminism is often regarded with sneering hostility. Yet between those two views there is a group of Muslim women many do not believe exists: a diverse bunch who fight sexism from within, as committed to the fight as they are to their faith. Hemmed in by Islamophobia and sexism, they fight against sexism with their minds, words and bodies. Often, their biggest weapon is their religion."
