Chapter Five presents the voices of four U.S. Muslim women who actively incorporate social justice practices into their engagements with Islam: Sister Aisha Al-Adawiya, Asifa Quraishi-Landes, Laila Al-Marayati, and Hazel Gomez. Each woman articulates clear relationships with gender justice and feminism in their lives. The chapter explores how their work and perspectives refract the racial and gendered legacies of U.S. Muslim women across the last century. It introduces the concept of Muslim feminism to link their experiences across racial, ethnic, and generational boundaries.

Keywords:   Aisha Al-Adawiya, Asifa Quraishi-Landes, Laila Al-Marayati, Hazel Gomez, Amina Wadud
