    Abstract

    In the early 90?s, by producing new theologies, Islamic feminism challenged dichotomies linked to colonial and decolonizing discourses that were shaped throughout the 20th Century on women?s rights and movements in the region. This feminist theology shows the ongoing appropriation of Islam by women, the individualization of religious knowledge, authority and practices. Since the beginning of the 2000?s, Islamic feminism has entered a new period: it has started to influence political Islam and contributed to feminist mobilizations of the third wave in Arab and Muslim countries and communities. Being hybrid and pragmatic, these mobilizations have challenged ideological oppositions. As such, they are deeply linked to postcolonial times. Renewing feminism and Islamic exegesis, the third wave is part of a process of democratization which started in the 90?s and has become visible with the ongoing uprisings and revolutions in the Arab world.
