About this product
- DescriptionUntil w the bulk of the literature about the veil has been written by outsiders who do t wear the veil. This literature often assumes a condescending tone about veiled women, assuming that they are making uniformed choices about veiling that makes them subservient to a patriarchal culture and religion. Rethinking Muslim Women and the Veil offers an alternative viewpoint, based on the thoughts and experiences of Muslim women themselves. This is the first time a clear and concise book-length argument has been made for the compatibility between veiling and modernity. Bullock uncovers positive aspects of the veil that are frequently t perceived by outsiders. Rethinking Muslim Women and the Veil looks at the colonial roots of the negative Western stereotype of the veil. The author argues that in consumer capitalist cultures, women can find wearing the veil liberating from the stifling beauty game that promotes unsafe and unhealthy ideal body images for women. The book also includes an extensive bibliography on topics related to Muslim women and the veil.
