Online resources on Islam and gender

Online resources on Islam and gender July 6, 2005

Came across a valuable resource on Islamic tradition and women.  It is the Muslim Sexual Ethics page at Brandeis University’s Feminist Sexual Ethics Project (a name sure to make aunties choke on her chai).

The site concisely and rigorously summarizes traditional Islamic views and textual sources on the following topics:

  • Marriage Contracts
  • Divorce
  • Understanding a Difficult Verse (Qur’an 4:34)
  • Veiling
  • Same-Sex Sexual Activity
  • Honor Killings
  • Islam and Slavery
  • Men, Women, and Human Beings in the Qur’an

The Islam page’s lead researcher, Kecia Ali, is an up and coming scholar of  gender in Islam.

Another website worth bookmarking and exploring on this topic is Karamah.
