This volume explores the two themes of equity in employment for Muslim women, and the identity and aspirations of Muslim youth in an age of Islamophobia in Western countries through conceptual and empirical studies of employment discrimination and alienation in the UK and the Netherlands. To these accounts are added a worldwide perspective on how women (and especially ethnic minority and Muslim women) experience, and try to overcome ethno-religious discrimination in entry to employment. The themes of Muslim women and youth struggling to survive are illustrated by accounts of teachers from Gaza who are providing ‘alternative families’ for children traumatised and orphaned through Israeli attacks. The idea of peaceful resistance, and Islamic patience in the face of persecution is developed throughout the book, and applied in a variety of settings.

A thought-provoking, enlightening, and empowering read awaits readers, especially women, as author Charlotte Hall shares how Women Give Men Too Much Power and lose themselves in the process. Because some men tend to forget to tell the truth always, the author takes on this task to help her fellow females stand up against or let go of things—or in this case, men—that try to destroy and disrupt their lives. This book is about real issues that face women and family. It gives a perspective focusing on the ugliness that men don’t want to confront: being the head of the household, keeping in-laws in check, being intimidated by successful women, if men would become successful in the things of God, they would know how to treat women right, loving and respecting her like royalty, and more. There are only two types of men: the faithful and the unfaithful. There’s no in-between. And in this book, the author talks about purpose and addresses when to run for the hills. This is a personally intimate talk, woman to woman, heart to heart. She shares all the important concerns, from knowing who the man is, the type of man he is, the abuse and healing, and so much more. “One of my strongest attributes is the fact that I can take accountability for my failures. The people who fooled me who lied to get what they wanted, who didn’t love me or could care less if I live or die, sometimes it hurt. At other times I avoided the obvious so I didn’t have to deal with it, hoping that it would go away, but it doesn’t. Confession will destroy pride and humble you so you can help others not to make the same mistakes,” says Hall as she explains the reason she wrote this book. Women Give Men Too Much Power aims to help, enlighten, uplift, inspire, heal, and move others.

In this book, Tracy Pintchman has assembled ten leading scholars of Hinduism to explore the complex relationship between Hindu women's rituals and their lives beyond ritual. The book focuses particularly on the relationship of women's ritual practices to domesticity, exposing and exploring the nuances, complexities, and limits of this relationship. In many cultural and historical contexts, including contemporary India, women's everyday lives tend to revolve heavily around domestic and interpersonal concerns, especially care for children, the home, husbands, and other relatives. Hence, women's religiosity also tends to emphasize the domestic realm and the relationships most central to women. But women's religious concerns certainly extend beyond domesticity. Furthermore, even the domestic religious activities that Hindu women perform may not merely replicate or affirm traditionally formulated domestic ideals but may function strategically to reconfigure, reinterpret, criticize, or even reject such ideals. This volume takes a fresh look at issues of the relationship between Hindu women's ritual practices and normative domesticity. In so doing, it emphasizes female innovation and agency in constituting and transforming both ritual and the domestic realm and calls attention to the limitations of normative domesticity as a category relevant to many forms of Hindu women's religious practice.
