Notes:
Global struggles over women's roles, rights, and dress have taken centre stage in a drama that cass the secular and the religious in tense if not violent opposition. Advocates for equality speak of the issue in terms of rights and modern progress while reactionaries ground their authority in religious and scriptural appeals. Both sides presume women's emancipation is tied to secularization. This volume upsets these certainties by blending diverse voices and traditions, both secular and religious, in studies historicizing, questioning, and testing the implicit links between secularism and religious, in studies historicizing, questioning, and testing the implicit links between secularism and expanded freedoms for women.
