Mobilizing Zanzibari Women: The Struggle for Respectability
Mobilizing Zanzibari Women: The Struggle for Respectability

Decker, C (Author)

'Decker provides a detailed and richly-nuanced study of Muslim women's education in Zanzibar, revealing not only what colonial officials, Islamic scholars, and island elites sought to achieve by providing secular education to women, but more importantly how Zanzibari women used schooling for their own empowerment. Her study situates the development of girls' education in Zanzibar within larger global trends in the Islamic and Western worlds for 'modernization' and demonstrates how island women's movements into paid professional employment were also part of a larger twentieth-century global trend towards women's economic self-reliance.' - Laura Fair, Associate Professor, Michigan State University, USA
