Women in Islam investigates the ongoing debate across the Muslim world and the West on the position of women in Islam.
Anne-Sofie Roald focuses on how Islamic perceptions of women and gender change in Western Muslim communities. She shows how Islamic attitudes towards social concerns such as gender relations, female circumcision, and female dress emerge as responsive to culture and context, rather than rigid and inflexible.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This insider study makes a detailed and much needed contribution to understanding the standpoints of Islamists in Europe on gender relations.' - Myfanwy Franks, University of York, Journal of Contemporary Religion

'Amid all the texts currently available on women and Islam, this particular book fills a vary obvious gap ... The result is a book of significant scholarly worth that is meticulously researched, carefully written, and perhaps one of the best books currently available on women in Islam ... an exemplary study about processes of religious and cultural change.' - Sophie Cilliat-Ray, Cardiff University, Interreligious Insight
