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
