There is a great deal of interest and misunderstanding about the role of women in the Muslim world. Based on Farhat Haq's research on the role of women in Islam and in Islamic Fundamentalist parties, she presents a sensitive and compelling portrayal of women's experience in this diverse culture. Through the use of scriptural and theological sources, Haq discusses the important role of women in Muslim culture.
