Edited by Jocelyne Cesari and José Casanova, Islam, Gender, and Democracy in Comparative Perspective focuses on women, religion, secularism, and democracy across different religious traditions and national contexts. It examines comparatively the situation of emergent Muslim democracies, as well as non-democratic cases. The book highlights the influence of transnational movements and feminist discourses, both Islamic and secular, on women's rights debates and policies in different national contexts.
