In this feminist critique of the politics of religion, Sheila Jeffreys argues that the renewed rise of religion is harmful to womena€™s human rights. The book seeks to rekindle the criticism of religion as the founding ideology of patriarchy. Focusing on the three monotheistic religions; Judaism, Christianity and Islam, this book examines common anti-women attitudes such as a€˜male-headshipa€™, impurity of women, the need to control womena€™s bodies, and their modern manifestations in multicultural Western states. It points to the incorporation of religious law into legal systems, faith schools, and campaigns led by Christian and Islamic organisations against womena€™s rights at the U.N., and explains how religious rights threaten to subvert womena€™s rights. Including highly-topical chapters on the burka and the covering of women, and polygamy, this text questions the ideology of multiculturalism which shields religion from criticism by demanding respect for culture and faith, whilst ignoring the harm that women suffer from religion. Mana€™s Dominion is an incisive and polemic text that will be of interest to students of gender studies, religion, and politics.My perusal of fatwa websites found that these rulings enforced a requirement of women to sexually service their husbands, womena#39;s ...
