The World of Islam Through the Eyes of Women
More than half a billion women live their lives peering out from behind heavy veils. Their lives are mysterious, misunderstood, and often marked by great persecution and hopelessness.
This groundbreaking book written by women intimately familiar with the world of Islam, draws back the covering on every stage and aspect of life for the Muslim woman—as a child, wife, mother, sister, and religious adherent.
The contributors, ranging from missionaries in Islamic countries, to reporters and former Muslims, paint a powerful picture of what it means to be a voice behind the veil.
