Abstract:

Women's rights have come under attack in many Muslim countries, particularly those where the state relies for support on fundamentalist religious elements among the clergy. The response of women to such attacks and their capacity to defend themselves is determined by the nature and level of women's organizations that exist within a particular social formation. In this article, the author examines the particularity of one specific case: that of Pakistan. The antecedents of women's mobilization and the transformation of their organizations over time are traced through their interface with political trends in the country. Particular attention is given to a new women's organization, the Women's Action Forum.
