Ednan Aslan is Chair of the Institute for Islamic Studies and Islamic Religious Education in the Centre for Teacher Education at the University of Vienna. Marcia Hermansen is Director of the Islamic World Studies program and Professor in the Theology Department at Loyola University Chicago. Elif Medeni is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Education at the University of Vienna.

This pioneering volume defines the contours of the emerging engagements of Muslim women scholars from around the world with the authoritative interpretive traditions of Islam, classical and contemporary. Muslima theology, here broadly defined to encompass a range of interpretive strategies and perspectives arising from multiple social locations, interrogates Islamic scripture and other forms of religious discourse to empower Muslim women of faith to speak for themselves in the interests of gender justice. Contributions provide an overview of the field at this juncture-ranging from pioneering Muslim scriptural feminism to detailed analyses of legal and mystical texts by a new international cohort of Muslim women academics and activists. Contemporary female Muslim "constructivist" approaches articulate concerns with diversity, including race and religious pluralism, paralleling developments in womanist and mujerista readings of religious texts.
