Identity Politics, Justice and the Schooling of Muslim Girls: Navigating the Tensions between Multiculturalism, Group Rights and Feminism
Keddie, Amanda
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v35 n3 p353-370 2014
This article focuses on the concerns expressed by three female Muslim educators who are support staff at an English comprehensive school. Consistent with the debates associated with multiculturalism, group rights and feminism, the article illuminates spaces of gender constraint and possibility within the discourses shaping these women's lives and the lives of the Muslim girls they educate. With reference to an initiative at the school designed to support these girls' greater self-determination--an Islamic discussion group--the article highlights the significance of a justice politics that begins with overcoming relations of status subordination rather than on differentiated group identity.
