I read this book and learnt a lot about the apologists arguments of the status of women in Islam. As I worked my way through the fairly 'dense' arguments, I kept wondering why are the women in Afghanistan condemned to be locked behind the blue 'Burqas', why do the women in Saudi Arabia need permission from a male to even travel, why are there hardly any women visible in any middle eastern city, and unfortunately I found not even an attempt at answering why have the women been oppressed in Muslim countries for the last millenia. So if you are willing to suspend your belief and go through how "real" Islam "can" be interpreted personally by a muslim woman who has been living in the US for the last 20 odd years, this book is for you.
