Abstract

In this article, the author outlines a number of mechanisms pertaining to Islamic scriptural hermeneutics that are affirmative of the very concept and goals of Islamic feminism. First, Duderija presents a brief outline of the concepts of scriptural hermeneutics and Islamic feminism. Next, he identifies and discusses the delineating features of Islamic feminist scriptural hermeneutics and how exactly they support the ideas underpinning Islamic feminist thought. Framing the discussion in this manner, the article aims to make a contribution to a wider acceptance and hence future viability of the very concept of Islamic feminism, especially among those who might be prejudiced against it on the basis of its employment of the word feminist.
