Women in the Koran—This topic is analogous to the one about Jesus and Moses. Again, get a good index of the Koran and an English translation of the entire text. Study all the verses concerning women/wives/mothers/daughters. Write a comprehensive survey essay describing the Koran’s attitude to and treatment of women. A good outside source for this topic is: Qur’an and Woman: Rereading the Sacred Text from a Woman’s Perspective by Amina Wadud (New York: Oxford University Press, 1999).
