Samenvatting

Religious women in liberal democracies are dual citizens because of their contrasting status as members of both a civic community (in which their gender has no impact on their constitutional guarantee of equal rights) and a traditional religious community (which distributes roles and power based on gender). This book shows how these dual citizens -Orthodox Jewish women in Israel, Muslim women in Kuwait, and women of both those faiths in the U.S.-have increasingly deployed their civic citizenship rights in attempts to reform and not destroy their religions. For them, neither exit nor acquiescence to traditional religious gender norms is an option. Instead, they use the narrative of civic citizenship combined with a more authentic, if alternative reading of their faith tradition to improve their status.

Feldman acknowledges her personal stake in this argument; her last book, Lubavitchers as Citizens, was an 'attempt to square [her] feminism and nonpartisan humanism . . . with [her] strong attachment to Lubavitch, ' and more recently, she has explained how she became 'the only professor on campus'--at the University of Vermont, where she teaches political science--'in a sheitel.' -- Tablet Also alive and well: feminist activism among Orthodox Jews and Muslims in contemporary Israel, Kuwait, and the United States.
