Description
This detailed and significant study is a powerful critique of the popular western notion that the veil is a symbol of Muslim women's oppression.

In postulating a positive theory of the hijab, the author challenges with great sophistication both the commonly held view of Muslim women being utterly subjugated by men, as well as the more complex arguments put forward by liberal feminists such Mernissi, McCleod and others who have sought to criticize the choice of women to cover themselves as ultimately unliberating.

Examining and questioning the validity and accuracy of some of the feminists assumptions, the author puts forward the case that the judgement of the veil as being as oppressive feature of Islam is based on liberal understandings of equality and liberty which preclude other ways of thinking abou these issues that offer a positive approach for contemplating the wearing of the veil.
