Recommended for: anyone interested in religion
Read in July, 2007

This is a rewarding book on many levels. It is an eye-opening critique of social movements theory and contemporary feminism's conception of agency, but it is also a sensitive portrait of an Islamic women's movement in Egypt. Highly recommended for anyone interested in feminism, religion, religion & politics, or Islamist social movements.
