An Introduction to Key Debates between Islamic Law and International Human Rights Law
Chapter 7: Islam, human rights and women
This chapter considers the rights of women in Islam: from the revolutionary nature of the rights granted to women under the Prophet; to the eventual deterioration of those rights some centuries later; to those scholars fighting to revive the Qur’an’s original teachings in the contemporary period. It also provides an overview of the rights of women according to international law and explores the tensions and compatibilities between international standards for women’s rights and Islamic law.
