Summary

Summary

This study of the everyday religious practice of pious women within Kuala Lumpur's affluent Malay middle class reveals that women play an active part in the Islamization process by organizing and participating in public programs of religious education, transforming the traditionally male-dominated space of the mosque and breaking men's monopoly over positions of religious authority.--Sylva Frisk is a lecturer in the School of Global Studies at Gothenburg University, Sweden.
