This chapter focuses on Islamic discourse about women. It shows that a new feminine conscience or, more broadly speaking, an understanding of the issues linked to the question of women has emerged in Muslim-majority countries and Muslim communities around the world. Women and men have taken full measure of the problems facing contemporary Muslim societies and have decided to address the issue directly, by stating first of all that there was clearly a problem in the way texts about women were approached and, consequently, in the general Islamic discourse and the concrete implementation of its teachings.

Keywords:   Islamic thought, Islamic law, Muslim women, family, mosques
