Margot Badran


Margot Badran is a senior fellow at the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University. Her work has focused on women, gender, and feminisms in Islam and Muslim societies for more than three decades and has combined teaching and scholarship, public intellectual work, consulting, and activism. For a succinct reflection upon her work and ongoing concerns see her following books: Feminism in Islam: Secular and Religious Convergences (Oneworld, Oxford, February 2009). This is a selection of some of her scholarly work over more than two decades in which she theorized and analyzed the two basic feminist paradigms Muslims have historically generated and which they have labeled: secular feminism and Islamic feminism. Feminism beyond East and West: New Gender Talk and Practice in Global Islam (Global Media Publication, New Delhi, 2007), brings together a collection of her public intellectual work.
