This thesis examines one outcome of the intersection of mainstream gender and development paradigms with paradigms of gender and development in an Islamic context. It explores the concept of Islamic feminism, as operationalized by one group of women in Turkey, analyzing the similarities and differences of this paradigm with other gender and development paradigms. Furthermore, it considers the implications and applicability of Islamic feminism, as a gender and development paradigm, for women in Less Developed Countries.
