Chapter Summary

This preliminary material of this book Secular and Islamic Feminist Critiques in the Work of Fatima Mernissi contains the table of contents, preface and acknowledgments. In this book, the author analyzes the two moments of Mernissi's work neither to foreground the existence of some major contradiction in it nor to privilege one aspect of her critique at the expense of another. She rather looks at the shift in Mernissi's position in terms of evolution and in light of changing social and political dynamics or contexts. She also critically assesses her two feminist positions equally in a way that identifies the enabling and disabling strategies in both moments, with the aim of contributing to the discussion on Islamic feminism as a theory and social project.

Keywords: Fatima Mernissi; Islamic feminism
