Chapter Summary

Feminist psychotherapy focuses on empowerment and advocacy of under represented groups. This chapter proposes a feminist framework for working with Muslim women and addresses current issues that Muslim women face in the United States. The chapter presents a brief overview of Muslim women's relationship with feminism. It also discusses the application of feminist psychotherapy to diverse Muslim women, and illustrates the use of feminist psychotherapy with Muslim women. Given the important cultural, political, and religious influences in Muslim womens lives, feminist psychotherapy offers an important framework that can lead to a deeper understanding of Muslim womens experiences. This deeper understanding could lead to more Muslim women feeling empowered within the religion of Islam. The chapter also calls on scholars to expand their multicultural research agendas by investigating therapy outcomes for Muslim women.
