The Teacher’s Dilemma: Exploring the Border between Culture Relativism and Prejudice when Discussing Gender Issues in Islam
Religious education, Cybergymnasiet, Stockholm.ORCID iD: 0000-0001-7042-0877
2009 (English)In: Your Heritage and Mine: Teaching in a Multi-Religious Classroom / [ed] Lena Roos, Jenny Berglund, Uppsala: Swedish Science Press , 2009Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter, I discuss the challenges teachers face when teaching gender issues in Islam. I argue that in order to avoid falling into culture relativism, teachers need to use feminist voices from inside Islam in order to lift forth perspectives that are deemed relevant. This way the agenda is formulated within an Islamic context, rather than by Western (non-Muslim) academics.
