    The emergence of new feminist voices of Islam in the late 1980s was the inception of the latest stage in this struggle. By advocating a brand of feminism that takes Islam as the source of its authenticity, these feminist voices are effectively challenging the domination of patriarchal interpretations of the sharia and the legitimacy of the views of those, who until now have spoken in the name of Islam.

    Such a challenge has been made possible, even inevitable, by the Islam’s call for a return to sharia and attempts to impose outdated jurisprudential constructions of gender relations. This call has placed Islamic feminism in a unique position to bring about a much needed paradigm shift in Islamic law.
