Summary, etc.:
"Bent Rib: A Journey Through Women's Issues in Islam is the result of the author's exploration of a number of issues surrounding Muslim women, especially those which critics of Islam use as ammunition. These are issues which are concern to all Muslim women. Bent Rib examines a number of controversial issues such as domestic violence, female genital mutilation and failure to educate girls, and points out the divergence between Islamic teaching and actual culturally-influenced, practice. The problem is not Islam itself, but un-Islamic practices that are prevalent in many communities, a situation which has to be addressed." -- provided by publisher.
