AbstractPolitics of Piety presents an ethnographic work, conducted by Saba Mahmood and a group of pious women activists in the mosques of Cairo, hence giving their activism the name “the women’s mosque movement” (Mahmood, 2005, p.3). In this book, Mahmood questions secular liberal feminists about their critiques that religious movements are patriarchal and oppressive. She also attempts to extend feminist arguments to explore the conditions that form the feminist subject of movements such as the mosque movement in Cairo.
