Chapter Summary

This index presents the terms and concepts of fundamentalism and women rights. This book titled Competing Fundamentalisms and Egyptian Women's Family Rights seeks to better understand the complex sources of discrimination against women in the area of family relations, as well as avoid prevailing generalisations that plague a great deal of the literature on the rights of Muslim women. The book can contribute, to the mammoth effort being undertaken by many Egyptians in their search for effective and pragmatic methods to uphold the rights and dignity of Egyptian women, while allowing them to stay true to their identity and their ideals.

Keywords:Egyptian women; fundamentalism
