In this course, students will explore the many ways in which Islamic societies have viewed women, and the many roles women have played within Islamic societies. We will consider the relationship of the teachings of the Qur’an to the everyday realities of family, marriage, divorce, education, the workplace, economics, political participation, and religious participation. For each subject area, students will build context by examining the practical experiences of individual Islamic women from a range of nations and cultures and by drawing connections with their own life experiences. Students will gain an appreciation both of the commonalities of the Isalmic world and of the diverse interpretations and practices that characterize it.
