Reading Contemporary Indonesian Muslim Women Writers looks at the work of four writers—Titis Basino P.I., Ratna Indraswari Ibrahim, Abidah El Kalieqy, and Helvy Tiana Rosa—paying particular attention to questions of how gender is constructed and in turn constructs the identities, roles, and status of Muslim women in Indonesia. In addition, Diah Ariani Arimbi focuses on issues of authenticity, representation, and power in these authors’ works and details how each woman challenged perceptions of Muslim women in Islamic societies.
