In the Muslim world, women have equal opportunities of work on theoretical and legislative bases, but in practice women benefit less than men because of the de facto discrimination practices of society. This paper deals with the laws guiding the work of women in Muslim countries by using the Jordanian legal system as an example. It will be argued that law is an important area of practice for social transformation. By recognizing that power is diffused throughout society rather than located solely in the state and related institutions, law can be used to facilitate transitions in social and economic transformations even where traditions and social constraints severely hinder change.
