Muslim Women and the Veil Challenging Historical & Modern Sterotypes
This book offers a powerful critique of the Western notion that the hijab, the veil, is a symbol of Muslim women's oppression. The author examines the views of feminist scholars who offer a variety of interpretations of the Islamic guidelines regarding hijab and discusses the view that women only wear hijab
Bullock analyses 19th and early 20th century Western images of Muslim women (in paintings, drawings, postcards, and words), interviews Muslim women in present-day Toronto on the practice of veiling, explores the reasons that Muslim women veil, as recorded in the work of contemporary academics, anthropologists, feminists, and mass-market journalists, and analyzes and refutes Fatima Mernissi’s claims vis a vis the veil (finally!). Her work in this last area is valuable not just for being a refutation of Mernissi’s claims against the veil, but as an expose of Mernissi’s faulty methodology, lapses in logic, and her agenda against Abu Hurayrah, Sayiduna Umar, and Imam al Ghazali. Bullock also explores the troubling issue of Muslims (and others) resorting to Orientalist authored texts (whether historical or present-day) in order to “grasp” issues surrounding Muslim women, Islam, state, and law.
In the final section, An Alternative Theory of the Veil, Bullock explores and refutes stereotypes of Muslim men and women that are held and promoted by both Orientalists and feminists (for example, that the veil means men do not have to take responsibility for their sexuality, but that women shoulder the burden for both). She also addresses, several times in the book, the apparently revolutionary idea that Muslim women who veil do so out of love for their Creator, and a desires to obey His Word (e.g. the Qur’an).
Katherine Bullock IS AN ALUMNA OF THE UNIVERSITY

"Islam teaches that marriage is ‘half of religion’ because it fulfils so many basic needs of individuals and of society, it is the cornerstone upon which the whole Muslim life is built.
"Modern life brings strains and pressures which can upset even the most compatible relationship. This means that nowadays, to protect the spirit of cooperation and happiness which is the sign of the true Islamic marriage, careful thought needs to be given to the mechanisms which help husband and wife to live together and respect each other’s rights.
"This highly-readable book takes the reader through the relevant passages in the Quran and Hadith, and goes on to discuss the main social and emotional problems that can afflict relationships, suggesting many practical ways in which these can be resolved."
