Conceiving Citizens: Women and the Politics of Motherhood in Iran
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Conceiving Citizens: Women and the Politics of Motherhood in Iran by Firoozeh Kashani-Sabet examines issues of hygiene, marriage, sexuality, and reproduction in relation to notions of citizenship and politics in Iran. Kashani-Sabet's thorough research is grounded in a rigorous methodology. Her thoughtful exploration of politicized motherhood, while viewed through an Iranian lens here, is of regional and universal significance. The book's wider contribution lies in demonstrating how the combination of science and sexuality challenges existing Islamic values and practices and how it has played a critical role in the emergence of women's rights movements, a phenomenon observed throughout the Muslim world.
