520    "Passed into law over a decade before the Iranian 
       Revolution, the Family Protection Law drew the ire of the 
       conservative clergy and the Ayatollah Khomeini, and was 
       one of the first laws to be rescinded following the 
       establishment of the Islamic Republic. The law was hardly 
       a surprising target, however, since women's status in Iran
       was then - and continues now to be - a central concern of 
       Iranian political leaders, media commentators and 
       international observers alike. Examining the issue of 
       women's status in a modern context, Marianne Bøe offers a 
       nuanced view of how women's rights activists assert their 
       positions within an Islamic context. By weaving together 
       religious and historical texts and narratives with 
       discourses on human rights, these women were able to 
       communicate their views to those in political power. In 
       2007, after a 40-year hiatus, codified family law stormed 
       back onto the Iranian political scene with the 
       introduction of the Family Protection Bill. However, the 
       dynamics in 2007 were considerably different from those of
       1967. Whereas the earlier law attempted to grant women a 
       wider range of rights in marriage and divorce, the 2007 
       Bill restricted women more than the laws then on the 
       books. As a result, the Bill proved a massive point of 
       contention and was, at one point, withdrawn from 
       consideration due to overwhelming opposition. It has since
       been resubmitted though the most controversial elements of
       the Bill and family law in general continue to be debated.
       By examining women's rights activists, Bøe emphasises the 
       ways in which these women's elaborations on family law 
       entail both change and continuity of the Islamic theology,
       and particularly how different secular and religious-based
       sources intersect and are entwined. Through her 
       substantial fieldwork and innovative analysis, Bøe 
       undermines the traditional view of 'Islamic Feminism' as 
       monolithic and clears a path to a new understanding of the
       role of women's rights activists in shaping and 
       synthesising debates on the Shariʻa, women's rights and 
       family law. As such, this book is essential for anyone 
       studying family law and the role of women in contemporary 
       Iran"--Unedited summary from book jacket
