Research project

Gender Justice and Islamic Reformation in Malaysia

An exploration of the intimate lives and professional commitments of Muslim women intellectual activists who are challenging institutionalized religious authority to address gender injustice in Malaysia. The study investigates their strategy of claiming rights, which combines feminist/gender egalitarian hermeneutics, constitutional law, and human rights principles to explicate the production and transmission of religious knowledge rooted in equality and justice.
