Women in the church: a muslim woman sets the record straight

Kent State Assistant Professor Nawal H. Ammar was born and raised in Egypt. During the 1979 Iranian revolution, she was a college student in England, where fellow classmates and teachers often challenged her knowledge of Islam; for the first time she became aware of the West’s image of her religion in a painful way that eventually led her to delve into Islam’s holy and historical texts to answer six questions she had been continually asked. Four pertain directly to women, and two are important concepts that she says U.S. media and academics persistently misrepresent. The resulting paper, On Being a Muslim Woman: Laws and Practice, is archived for download on the Articles on Women and Religion page of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research website. The institute conducts and disseminates rigorous research on current and emerging issues related to the practice of faith in America, and its Women and Religion page also includes resources, research and articles about the role of women in other faith traditions.
