By Sherine Hafez

As the area grapples with problems with non secular fanaticism, extremist politics, and rampant violence that search justification in both “religious” or “secular” discourses, girls who declare Islam as a automobile for person and social switch are usually both considered as pious topics who sign up for an ideology that denies them many sleek freedoms, or as feminist topics who search empowerment basically via rejecting faith and adopting secularist discourses. Such assumptions emerge from a standard pattern within the literature to categorize the ‘secular’ and the ‘religious’ as polarizing different types, which in flip mitigates the identities, reviews and activities of girls in Islamic societies. but essentially Muslim girls whose activism is grounded in Islam draw both on rules linked to secularism.

In An Islam of Her Own, Sherine Hafez specializes in women’s Islamic activism in Egypt to problem those binary representations of spiritual as opposed to secular subjectivities. Drawing on six non-consecutive years of ethnographic fieldwork inside a women's Islamic stream in Cairo, Hafez analyzes the ways that ladies who perform Islamic activism narrate their selfhood, articulate their wishes, and include discourses within which the limits are blurred among the non secular and the secular.
