Example text

Surely this is something all feminists can celebrate. Stanley and Wise (1993) have alluded to a current problem for women's studies, where a shift to `interdisciplinarity' may actually mean `literary criticism' where postmodernist feminists from many disciplines look at data merely as a `text' to be deconstructed. This has a peculiarly distancing effect from the content of the data in that emotional contact is superseded by an intellectual exercise. Treated in this way the `text' is often divorced from its historical and social context.

Surveys were viewed by many feminists as being appropriate to dominant male culture and inappropriate as a means of gathering women's experience (Finch 1991: 196). Although there may be truth in the fact that few of us fit the questions in questionnaires, my experience of the use of a snowball questionnaire, as part of my data collection process, has been positive. Because the respondent generally chooses a time appropriate to herself in which to answer the questions, has time to ponder on her responses, and is anonymous, many answers have been deeply illuminating.

Kabbani indicates that in the Qur'anic story of the Fall, Adam bears equal responsibility with Eve and she contrasts this with what she sees as the inherent sexism in Christian scriptures with regard to this story (Kabbani 1992: 37). Bouthaina Shaaban is another of the writers who suggest that women were empowered by early Islam to become `queens, doctors, warriors, poets, and literary critics' (Shaaban 1995: 62). If one way of assisting women's struggle within Islam is to accentuate the positive teachings in the Qur'an in relation to women, another is to question the validity of the Hadith, with regard to those utterances, attributed to Muhammad, which appear to encourage the oppression of women (Mernissi 1991: 49).
