Critique: 'A unique contribution to knowledge ... the reader is taken on a journey... We thus witness how the young women employ minds and bodies to articulate ideas and demand change at the family, legal and political levels. ... I highly recommend this well-researched book for its demystification of the lives and autonomy of women in the Muslim world, as well as its accessibility as a good and informative read for the general public worldwide.' --Elaheh Rostami-Povey, Lecturer in Development Studies, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London
