As far as liberation theology is concerned, Ali Shariati has been the most cited author in the Muslim world. His speeches and writings were quoted with the aim of gathering believers for a cause, or for many causes for that matter. What makes this commentary on women relevant is Shariati’s excavation of the Islamic tradition for positive, revolutionary models, inspirations and his call for their urgent revival and emulation…. Feminists, especially those who have studied Iranian intellectuals, have found it difficult to accept Shariati’s position on women. At a deeper level this difficulty can be seen, especially by an informed reader of this book, as a problem caused by the audience both of Shariati and feminists. With all their critiques, feminist critics, especially Laleh Bakthiar, who has compiled, translated and edited the works of Shariati, have, however, realized the role of Shariati in the liberation of women.
