520 "Saba Mahmood';s 2005 Politics of Piety is an excellent
example of evaluation in action. Mahmood';s book is a
study of women';s participation in the Islamic revival
across the Middle East. Mahmood--a feminist social
anthropologist with left-wing, secular political values--
wanted to understand why women should become such active
participants in a movement that seemingly promoted their
subjugation. As Mahmood observed, women';s active
participation in the conservative Islamic revival
presented (and presents) a difficult question for Western
feminists: how to balance cultural sensitivity and
promotion of religious freedom and pluralism with the
feminist project of women';s liberation? Mahmood';s
response was to conduct a detailed evaluation of the
arguments made by both sides, examining, in particular,
the reasoning of female Muslims themselves. In a key
moment of evaluation, Mahmood suggests that Western
feminist notions of agency are inadequate to arguments
about female Muslim piety. Where Western feminists often
restrict definitions of women';s agency to acts that
undermine the normal, male-dominated order of things,
Mahmood suggests, instead, that agency can encompass
female acts that uphold apparently patriarchal
values.Ultimately the Western feminist framework is, in
her evaluation, inadequate and insufficient for discussing
women';s groups in the Islamic revival."--Provided by
