Velvet Jihad

Faegheh Shirazi

University Press of Florida

As Muslims are different in terms of the way they think and act as well as in what they believe in, several Muslims would assert how liberty in the context of human rights should be synonymous with Islam. Muslim women have attempted in several ways to condemn utilizing Islam as a means of relegation and control to justify misogyny. They believe that it is every woman's right to act think, believe, and act through her conscience and through what is in line with her intelligence as well as her needs. The face of Islamic reform entails the face of women who are attempting to pursue agendas that would initiate consideration and change in both global and national policy. As such, the author points out that the reform process is to be perceived not as a revolution, but as an evolution.
