Challenging Historical and Modern Stereotypes


Until now, the bulk of literature about the veil has been written by outsiders who do not themselves veil. The literature often assumes a condescending tone about veiled women, assuming that they are making uninformed choices about veiling that makes them subservient to a patriarchal culture and religion. This work offers an alternative viewpoint, based on thoughts and experiences of Muslim women themselves.


"The veil is a flashpoint in current Islamic discourse… Dr Bullock's book deserves serious attention" - Shaykh Hamza Yusuf Hanson
