Humanizing the Sacred :
Sisters in Islam and the Struggle for Gender Justice in Malaysia
Although the predominant Islamic discourse and practice in Malaysia appear to have been taking on more 'traditionalist' trappings in recent years, this book highlights a contrary trend, the advocacy for women's rights based on Muslim teachings. Spearheading this challenge has been the Sisters in Islam, a non governmental organisation of professional women promoting justice and equality. Through integrating piety and reason they continue to demonstrate how women can take their place at the centre of Islamic life in the country. New Paperback. First Edition. 330 pages with references and an index.
