oppressed. For many, the way to reform is the reexamination and reinterpretation of religious texts.
«Qur'an and Woman» contributes a gender inclusive reading to one of the most fundamental disciplines in Islamic thought, Qur'anic exegesis. Wadud breaks down specific texts and key words which have been used to limit women's public and private role, even to justify violence toward Muslim women, revealing that their original meaning and context defy such interpretations. What her analysis clarifies is the lack of gender bias, precedence, or prejudice in the essential language of the Qur'an.
Despite much Qur'anic evidence about the significance of women, gender reform in Muslim society has been stubbornly resisted. Wadud's reading of the Qur'an confirms womens equality and constitutes legitimate grounds for contesting the unequal treatment that women have experienced historically and continue to experience legally in Muslim communities. The Qur'an does not prescribe one timeless and unchanging social structure for men and women, Wadud argues lucidly, affirming that the Qur'an holds greater possibilities for guiding human society to a more fulfilling and productive mutual collaboration between men and women than as yet attained by Muslims or non-Muslims.
