Abstract [en]

This study aims to take a closer look at how women in the Jewish tradition are portrayed in two Judith Plaskows books, Standing again at Sinai and The coming of Lilith: Essays on feminism, Judaism, and sexual ethics, 1972-2003. The way that Plaskow presents women in her books will be compared to Geraldine Brooks's book Nine parts of desire and Mohammad Fazlhashemis book Vems islam? and their portrayal of women in the Islamic culture. The study uses one of the interdisciplinary theories called intersectional theory to critically examine the chosen literature. The issues the study will try to answer are based upon the theory. The issues are: 1) how are women perceived in the Jewish and Muslim communities according to the different authors? 2) What aspects do the authors believe has affected the outcome of women's position within religious communities? 3) Do the authors mention men and if they have affected women's discourse? And if mentioned do they believe men's influence was/is positive or negative?
