Klappentext:
One of the most contentious and recent human rights issues in Muslim countries during and after the Arab spring is the issue of women’s rights. This book aims at protecting and enhancing women’s rights on the ground of Islam through advocating modern re-interpretive approach from females’ perspective in order to challenge traditional interpretations of Islamic principles. This book seeks (i) to argue that cultural relativism is the most serious problem which faces women’s rights in Islamic societies. This is so as Islamic cultural relativism (in this case, religion) is misused and misinterprets Islam in patriarchal ways to legitimize the violation and the denial of women's rights through the language of religion. This book seeks also, (ii) to show that Islam is not oppressive to women but it’s the patriarchal interpretations of Islam and also does not contradict international women’s rights. For support my arguments, certain case-studies such as marriage, child custody, and gender equality in Jordan are taken as living examples of the status of women's rights. That is so as to show the problematic nature of patriarchal interpretation of Islam.
