Cover image

Ziba Mir-Hosseini is an anthropologist by training who has been working on Islamic Family Law for the past 25 years. In this audio interview, Mir-Hosseini explains how, for her, feminism in a Muslim context is struggling for justice, standing up against discrimination and having the ability to make dignified choices in life. Director of the documentary film, "Divorce Iranian Style" (1998), Mir-Hosseini says that the research she did for the film was part of a wider project on the application of family law in Iran and Morocco, which came out as a book in 1993. The book, Marriage on Trial: Study of Islamic Family Law - Iran and Morocco Compared (Society & Culture in the Modern Middle East), compares family law in Iran and Morocco and women’s access to the court system.
