Secular Arab Feminisms and the question of the veil

For the third part of the online series Critical Thinking within Islam researcher Leïla Tauil takes a critical look at the scriptural sources to give more insights in issues related to the process of re-Islamization. In her lecture and accompanying text she analyzes the veiling of women's bodies in Brotherist, Salafist and Islamic feminist discourses and sheds light on the thesis of the historicity of the Quranic discourse advocated by Islam scholar Mohammed Arkoun.
