Islamic feminism is a movement of regeneration, spiritual and political, born from a return to the sources of Islam, in the construction of today's pluralistic societies. This is a compilation of six articles, by various authors, plus a presentation by the Puerto Rican sociologist Ramón Grosfoguel. Contrary to what the West and its powers, in their expansive, colonial and imperialist mania have wanted to show, Islam recognizes gender equality. Islamic feminism is based on the interpretation of the Koran, highlighting the social and political origin of discrimination against women, founded on the patriarchal interpretation of the holy book of Islam. In this sense, it is a movement that claims the role of women, based on the principle of parity with respect to men, present in their true religious tradition. His argument is that Islam has been interpreted throughout the centuries (and especially in recent times) in a patriarchal and misogynistic way, thus distorting its spiritual message; This manipulation seeks to deepen the differences, in addition to keeping women outside of equal participation in all areas of Muslim society.
RAMÓN GROSFOGUEL (Puerto Rico, 1954) Sociologist, writer, researcher and university professor. Graduated in Sociology from the University of Puerto Rico, with a doctorate from Temple University, based in Philadelphia (USA). He has become a world reference with the project of which he is the founder, Decolonity Europe. Grosfoguel's thought is linked to the philosophy of Latin American liberation, to the perspective of the coloniality of power and to the search for new orientations of the deles.
