Both a scholarly and personal critique of current feminist Moroccan discourses, this book is a call for a larger-than-Islam framework that accommodates the Berber dimension. Sadiqi argues that current feminist discourse, both secular and Islamic ones, are not only divergent but limit the rich heritage, knowledge, and art of Berber women.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A valuable book, exploring and opening up a new and important terrain." - Leila Ahmed, Victor S. Thomas Professor of Divinity, Harvard University, USA

"It is no accident that one of the foremost advocates of the Berber language is also a central voice in feminist scholarship in Morocco. Sadiqi weaves together the parallel stories of the Berber legacy and the rising tide of women's rights, demonstrating how both interacted with Islam to become enshrined in the new constitution during the 'Moroccan Spring' of 2011. In her inimitable voice, she adds her personal journey, reminding us that feminism remains an unfinished story." - Ann Braude, Director of the Women's Studies in Religion Program, Harvard University, USA

"As Morocco extends and deepens its democratization process and the world becomes more attentive to developments there and elsewhere in North Africa, Sadiqi's brilliant analysis of the Berber dimension of the women's rights movement and socio-political change will be a central resource for years to come. Sadiqi seamlessly weaves the personal, historical, and political to produce a rich and eminently readable narrative." - Valentine M. Moghadam, Professor of Sociology and International Affairs, Northeastern University, USA
