Routledge Revivals: Moslem Women Enter a New World (1936) by Ruth Frances Woodsmall

First published in 1936, this book surveys the changing place of women across the contemporaneous Muslim world, focusing on several nations where they constitute a demographic majority - Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Palestine, Trans-Jordan, Turkey, Syria - and one where they do not, namely India. It begins by outlining some of the areas of change, for example regarding the veil, purdah and divorce. This is followed by in depth examinations of the progress of female education, their changing economic roles, improving health standards, their widening interests and the pressure for change on Islam in general. This title is would be of interest to students of the sociology of religion and the contemporary position of women in Muslim societies.
