The discussion around Muslim women and sexism seems as prolific as it is uninformed. Cliches and stereotypes from all sides abound but very little information from Muslim women engaged at the coalface of fighting sexism is available.

Susan Carland investigates the stories, motivations and challenges of a group of Muslim women in Australia and North America who fight sexism within the Muslim community as theologians, activists, writers and bloggers. Most significantly, far from seeing their faith as the cause of the sexism they face, they see it as the vehicle to bring about the change they want, and an important part of their religious heritage. And in doing so, they are changing the face of the communities and societies in which they operate.
