Muslim Women on the Move: Moroccan Women and French Women of Moroccan Origin Speak Out (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


Muslim Women on the Move offers a comparison of two Muslim populations that to date have not been compared in this way. Author Doris Gray compares the personal views of young educated women in Morocco with those of young educated women of Moroccan immigrant origins in France. She conducted extensive personal interviews, loosely structured around three main themes, over a period of three years in Morocco and in France. The three thematic groups are: conceptions of the religion of Islam, legal changes affecting women in Morocco and Muslim women in France, and personal and professional goals and challenges. This book challenges the conventional dichotomy between the Western and the Muslim world. Voices of a select group of individuals from each of these very different countries show that despite their different national circumstances, they have much more in common than is conventionally assumed. Gray summarizes individual perceptions and puts them into the larger context of Muslim women and their particular circumstances in the two Western Mediterranean countries. Muslim Women on the Move will interest students and scholars of Middle Eastern Studies, Women's Studies, French and Francophone Studies, Religious Studies, African Studies, Anthropology, and Anthropology of Religion.
