Islam, Feminism, And The Law

This post by a feminist lawyer and Ph.D. scholar piqued my interest, as the author addresses how Islamic law and feminism are not always at odds. The author describes a case study in which she was able to help an immigrant woman, divorced and left helpless, utilize Islamic law (as well as her personal faith) to her benefit. It’s worth a read if you’re interested in overlap between different value systems that affect gender roles and sex.
