Summary
This text presents the literature of contemporary Islamic feminist authors, and analyzes their strategies for self-definition and self-empowerment. Illustrating the tremendous strides that Arab women have made towards independence since the 1970s, it seeks to shatter prevailing stereotypes. It also provides an alternative feminist understanding of recent, significant events such as the Gulf War. Miriam Cooke brings to a wide audience a multitude of voices that need to be heard. She opens the floodgates on women's Islamic literature, featuring writers like Assia Djebar, Nawal El Saadawi, Fatima Mernissi, and Zaynab al-Ghazali
