I’m very proud to share that I’m a contributor at the “Feminism and Religion” blog.  Please click through to see my first post entitled “Muslim Ritual Prayer, Social Submission, and Embodied Dissonance,” which concerns the use of repetitive ritual behaviors as a means of gendered-social control. My second post, “Creating Space: Mosques Affirming All Bodies Minds and Hearts,” discusses a resolution to the problem of embodied social control through ritual worship. My third post, “Doctor Debbie Downer Discourses on the Lives of Early Pious and Sufi Women” looks at romantic treatments of these women’s lives as a barrier to contemporary women’s empowerment.
