Mobilizing Piety

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Rahima, a Muslim women’s rights NGO, and Fatayat (Nahdlatul Ulama), the women’s wing of Indonesia’s largest Muslim organization. These groups are involved in efforts to bring ideas of women’s rights into Muslim communities. The chapter investigates how the activists of Rahima and Fatayat demonstrate pious critical agency as they seek out Islamic justifications for gender equality, and draw on discourses of transnational feminism and Islamic reformism, as well as Indonesia’s Islamic heritage, to argue for women’s rights and religious reform.

Keywords:   Islam, Women, Indonesia, Agency, Gender, Feminism, Rahima, Fatayat, Nadhlatul Ulama
