Muslim Women and Radicalization

An exploration of Muslim women’s involvement in violent religious politics, specifically Islam.

Dr Brown examines the ways in which gendered jihadi narratives motivate and enfranchise, and how they combine with everyday experiences of living and politics. She also examines how counter-terrorism and counter-radicalisation programmes impact on religious women’s rights and Muslim communities in the UK.

Dr Katherine Brown is a Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Birmingham.
