Abstract [en]

Islamic women in Iran challenge the clergy's monolithic rights of interpretation by radically reconstructing gender and Islamic discourses. The result has been the flourishing of a new Islamic feminism in Iran which interprets certain aspects of the Koran's view on gender differently than other Islamic feminist movements.

In Iran, Islamic feminists emphasize the historical context of the Koran and by doing so reformulate Islamic concepts and Islamic law from a "feminine" per¬spective. They open the door to the interpretation of sacred texts and dialogue on women issues to groups other than Muslims. They wrestle with the clergy's gen der conservatism and their hate of the West. By finding common ground with Western feminists and by viewing their struggle as an integral part of the global feminist struggle, Islamic feminists in Iran weave new textual connections between Muslim and Western women.
