Description - Women and Revivalism in the West by Myfanwy Franks

Why do some western women choose to join Christian and Islamic revivalist movements at the beginning of the 21st century? Revivalist religions (often called "fundamentalist") have a reputation for the policing of gender boundaries and roles and the blanket subjugation of women. This study aims particularly to establish what the attractions might be for women who choose to swim against the prevailing consumerist current and affiliate themselves with such groups in a liberal democracy.
