This groundbreaking book explores women's resistance against the harsh policing of sexuality in Muslim societies. Many Muslim majority countries still use religious discourse to enforce stigmatisation and repression of those, especially women, who do not conform to sexual norms promoted by the state.

In this context, Islam is often stigmatised in Western discourse for being intrinsically restrictive with respect to women's rights and sexuality.

This insightful collection shows that conservative Muslim discourse does not necessarily match practices of believers or citizens and that women's empowerment is facilitated where indigenous and culturally appropriate strategies are developed.

Using case studies from Pakistan, Iran, Indonesia, China, Bangladesh, Israel and India, the volume persuasively argues that Muslim religious traditions do not necessarily lead to conservative agendas but can promote emancipatory standpoints.

A timely intervention to the construction of 'Muslim women' as uniformly subordinate, this book spearheads an unprecedented wake of organising around Muslim sexuality issues.

While most of the Christmas backlog with Royal Mail appears to have cleared and delivered, there are still considerable delays with deliveries at the moment across the UK. Royal Mail continue to collect our orders each day, but due to the high numbers of their staff isolating with covid infections, deliveries can be delayed. Many deliveries are still arriving within 1-2 working days, but others orders can take up to 10 working days. The North West, South East and London areas seem to be the most affected. This page on the Royal Mail details the areas of the UK most affected.
