An unprecedented, sympathetic, and systematic exploration of the mysterious world of Islamic women, by women who have been there. More than half a billion women live their entire lives peeking out from behind heavy veils. Theirs is a mysterious, misunderstood life often lived without hope and under great persecution.

This groundbreaking book is written by evangelical Christian women who have seen the other side. Ranging from missionaries in Islamic countries, to former reporters and columnists, the contributors give a powerful and unsilenceable voice to the women behind the veil. Written by women with such deep knowledge of Muslim life that some of the identities have been obscured for their protection A discussion of the real women of Islam--not the veils, protocols, and rules

Review: Voices Behind the Veil: The World of Islam Through the Eyes of Women

User Review  - Ginger - Goodreads

This book was good. Informative, but a little anecdotal. I suppose I wanted to learn a little bit more about the cultural as a whole, but this book contained mostly specific stories. The reader is left to determine how universal each individual's experience is or is not. Read full review
