Islam and Feminism is a digital resource exploring the relationship between Islam and feminism from both an historical perspective and through the diverse lives of Muslim women today.
The resource highlights the broad range of thinkers on Islam and feminism and avoids rigid definitions that often lead to polarised discussions. As one of our contributors says, feminism should not be an exclusive club; the ideas should be accessible to everyone.

For some, Islam and feminism are often seen as incompatible, but as a number of our contributors point out, for them Islam provides a strong foundation for gender equality and social justice.

This resource is a conversation, and we expect the content to evolve with new material and new contributors. We hope this will be an open conversation and as such there will be both common ground and disagreement. But what remains vital is that this conversation happens so that the breadth of ideas and knowledge is available to everyone.
