Book Description

February 1977
"In this breakthrough of startling, refreshing voices, superficially simple women's lore (like the singing of lullabies) comes alive." --Whole Earth Review This volume is a collection of autobiographical and biographical writings by and about Middle Eastern women. Many of the selections have been translated by the editors from Arabic, Persian, or French; they not only represent real women from a wide range of occupations, points of view, and socioeconomic status, but also touch on major themes in the contemporary Muslim world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Reading Jan. 11 2014
By Arleigh Birchler - Published on Amazon.com
I read this anthology while in Seminary at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. I loved it, and I have frequently recommended it to others over the last thirty years. Since it is an anthology there is no need to read it from page one to the end. It is very well organized by different topics at different times in history. Islam is not some monolith. It is composed of many different peoples and many different cultures. This book does a good job of giving a glimpse at the many faces of Islamic culture.

3.0 out of 5 stars Islamic women May 22 2000
By Nassim - Published on Amazon.com
I had to read this book for Islamic class and let me tell you this book was very well informative but it was a bit boring...Very factual which is important in the controversy about the treatment of women in Islam. It talks about that there are communal practice permitted freedom in muslim society. It is not right that the freedom is hard to get but I am reminded of the Susan B. Anthony and the suffragettes. Globally, Women always suffer. This is a good book for research.
