If Islamic feminism means that a Muslim woman can also be a feminist and feminism and Islam (or Muslimhood) would not have to be incompatible, then I agree with it. But if that means that feminism in Muslim societies is somehow peculiar and essentially different from feminism in other societies so that it has to be always Islamic, I do not agree with such a concept. Similarly notions such as ‘Islamic democracy’ and ‘Islamic human rights’ are misleading….
