9781780747163: Men in Charge?: Rethinking Authority in Muslim Legal Tradition

Both Muslims and non-Muslims see women in most Muslim countries as suffering from social, economic, and political discrimination, treated by law and society as second-class citizens subject to male authority. This discrimination is attributed to Islam and Islamic law, and since the late 19th century there has been a mass of literature tackling this issue.

Recently, exciting new feminist research has been challenging gender discrimination and male authority from within Islamic legal tradition: this book presents some important results from that research. The contributors all engage critically with two central juristic concepts; rooted in the Qur’an, they lie at the basis of this discrimination. One refers to a husband’s authority over his wife, his financial responsibility toward her, and his superior status and rights. The other is male family members’ right and duty of guardianship over female members (e.g., fathers over daughters when entering into marriage contracts) and the privileging of fathers over mothers in guardianship rights over their children.

The contributors are scholars from different disciplines and backgrounds, brought together by Musawah (Arabic for "equality"), a global movement for equality and justice in the Muslim family.

Review :

"Men in Charge? is bound to be a key scholarly text for anyone researching or studying law or Islam in general. It is a necessary book, one which is carefully designed to combat misconceptions and prejudice, and one which, most importantly, has a practical focus: all of the book’s contributors are writing for change.... These authors pave the way for a brighter and fairer future for Muslim women."
- The London School of Economics and Political Science Book Review

"Bar none, this is the best treatment of women and Islamic law that I have read in the past twenty years...profound, eye-opening and even exhilarating. It is difficult for me to take seriously any student or scholar dealing with the subject of guardianship of men over women in Islam unless, or until, they have read and digested this book."
- Dr. Kaled Abou El Fadl - Omar and Azmeralda Alfi Professor of Law, UCLA School of Law

"Brimming with facts and insights, these critical and constructive essays by a global array of scholars and reformers focus our attention on how patriarchy functions in Muslim texts and contexts, and how it can be challenged. Their distinctive analyses converge and diverge, leading the reader to a new awareness of the range and power of Muslim feminist thought in the twenty-first century."
- Kecia Ali - Associate Professor of Religion, Boston University

"A highly stimulating collection of pieces by notable scholars and activists...Men in Charge? provides a complex and clearly articulated analysis of the problems with the dominant exegetical and juristic understandings of gender relations...an extremely valuable contribution to the discourse on gender relations, equality, justice and women's rights in Islam and among Muslims."
- Farid Esack, Professor in the Study of Islam and Head of Department of Religion Studies, University of Johannesburg
