Women's status in Islam has been defined by Islamic texts, the Koran, and the culture of the Muslims. Although the general belief is that Islam is very oppressive towards women, some argue that the Koran declares that men and women are equal.

The Holy Quran, the sacred scripture of Islam, contains hundreds of teachings, which apply both to men and women alike.

Writers include the public speaker and author Mona Eltahawy, Guardian journalist Coco . Explore our list of Women in Islam Books at Barnes & Noble®.
