Rate this:
Sexuality in Muslim Contexts explores resistance against the harsh policing of sexuality in some Muslim societies, where religious discourse is used to repress those, especially women, who do not conform to sexual norms promoted by the state or by non-state actors. Using case studies from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Iran, Israel, Indonesia, China and India, this collection spearheads an unprecedented wake of organizing around sexualities in Muslim communities.
