An Islam of Her Own: Reconsidering Religion and Secularism - download pdf or read online

By Sherine Hafez

As the realm grapples with problems with spiritual fanaticism, extremist politics, and rampant violence that search justification in both “religious” or “secular” discourses, girls who declare Islam as a motor vehicle for person and social swap are frequently both considered as pious topics who join an ideology that denies them many smooth freedoms, or as feminist matters who search empowerment in basic terms via rejecting faith and adopting secularist discourses. Such assumptions emerge from a standard development within the literature to categorize the ‘secular’ and the ‘religious’ as polarizing different types, which in flip mitigates the identities, reviews and activities of ladies in Islamic societies. but in fact Muslim girls whose activism is grounded in Islam draw both on ideas 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 of a women's Islamic flow in Cairo, Hafez analyzes the ways that ladies who perform Islamic activism narrate their selfhood, articulate their wishes, and include discourses during which the bounds are blurred among the spiritual and the secular.
