This book takes into account the confluence of different factors in studying pressures on, and prospects for, the mobility of Arab Muslim women. Saiyma Aslam discusses Arab Muslim feminism as a travelling theory which is deeply sensitive to global realities. She calls for a challenge to the long-celebrated myths and ideologies that have circulated within or outside the Muslim world regarding the status and role of Arab Muslim women. The book considers their lived reality as diverse, fluid, and marked by heterogeneity. It explores the works of two writers, the Moroccan sociologist Fatima Mernissi and the Egyptian novelist Nawal El Saadawi, who call attention to the stasis in domestic gender relations and the processes of change under global restructuring.
