Ayesha S. Chaudhry

Oxford Islamic Legal Studies

  • A multidisciplinary work that touches on law, religion, politics and gender studies to explore the issue of domestic violence in Islam
  • Explains the struggle to accommodate patriarchal religious traditions within a contemporary egalitarian framework
