Doumato, Eleanor Abdella Getting God's Ear: Women, Islam, and Healing in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf , New York: Columbia University Press, 2000.

First Edition. Paperback. New. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0231116675 The circumscribed role of women in orthodox religious societies has long been an intriguing and perplexing phenomenon, and the reconciliation of feminism with traditional religious practice is controversial to say the least. Getting God's Ear examines the role of religious worship and spiritual affairs in women's lives in the 20th-century Arab world, the meaning of women's exclusion from the sacred precincts of the mosque, women's limited access to religious learning, and the effects of this exclusion on their lives. Yet in spite of such exclusion, Arab women strive for spirituality within their roles as midwives, healers, and ritual participants, seeking to experience community, to heal and be healed, and to find ways of getting God to hear them. Includes illustrations, notes, bibliography and index. (Book ref. 038226 )  £ 9.99
