A great deal has been said and written about 'women in Islam' - from how they should behave and dress to their 'duties' and position in society. Muslim men, on the other hand, have escaped all scrutiny. With contributions from leading Muslim women scholars and writers, including Amina Wadud, Kecia Ali, Sheikhah Halima Krausen, Ziba Mir Hosseini, Asma Afsaruddin, Mohja Kahf, Alev Adil and Leyla Jagiella, this issue of Critical Muslim balances the equation. There are essays too from men on their role in the plight of women, including Amanullah De Sondy, Shanon Shah and Mark Gonzales. Plus Canon Angela Tilby on Women Bishops and Jenny Taylor on sexualisation of children. About Critical Muslim:
A quarterly publication of ideas and issues showcasing groundbreaking thinking on Islam and what it means to be a Muslim in a rapidly changing, interconnected world. Each edition centers on a discrete theme, and contributions include reportage, academic analysis, cultural commentary, photography, poetry, and book reviews.
