Women in the Quran: Alternative Interpretations
Amina Wadud is an Islamic scholar and author of Inside the Gender Jihad: Women's Reform in Islam.
Wadud made waves in the Muslim community when she led the first mixed-gender public Friday prayer service in the US. She was also the first scholar to pioneer the new field of gender-inclusive readings of the Qur'an.
Amina Wadud told Jerome about her journey through the texts and how she arrived at her pluralistic understanding of the Qur'an.
