We love Ziba Mir-Hosseini. For the first time in a documentary, she showed Iran's court system's unjust treatment of women, within the Islamic law, to western audiences. Her new book Journeys Toward Gender Equality in Islam will be out on May 10. Here is our interview with her.
"We need democratizing the production of knowledge [within the Islamic jurisprudent]"
"My aim has always been to include women voices."
"Amina wadood is one of the most important scholars in Islam.
She introduced gender as an analytical category of understanding the Quran."
