summary
“Vanguard of a New Modernity” draws feminist scholarly and political attention towards the women activists of the Jamaat-e-Islami, a major movement of Islamic renewal and reform in South Asia. In this ethnographic and textual study, Jamal examines the experiences of these women from 2002 to 2008 when significant numbers of Jamaat women came to occupy leadership positions within Pakistani state structure.
