Abstract

Can a woman be a Muslim and a feminist? This is the question that most often comes up from the public when we pause to analyze the latest women's readings of the sacred text of Islam. Here I'll try to answer this question, thanks to the help of some Muslim experts in Qur'ānic hermeneutics. With a reading that demonstrates how Muslim women can fight for freedom within the exegeses of the Qur'ān, contrary to what conservative (because they've given it a patriarchal reading) as well as progressive (because they believe it's necessary to depart from the text to approach various nuances of secularism) Muslims believe possible. The "door of interpretation" has definitely been re-opened.
