Summary
A comparative examination of gender politics of three culturally interconnected Muslim majority states (Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran) whose findings reveal remarkably similar outcomes across borders. Utilizing a historical context, this work underscores the continued struggle within these societies between the hardliners who wish to relegate females to the status of slaves and those who strive for gender equality within a conservative cultural milieu. -- Provided by publisher
