- Salafism often called 'Wahhabism,' is widely seen as a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam that subjugates women, yet growing numbers of young British women, many of them converts or from less conservative Muslim backgrounds, are actively embracing it. With unprecedented access to Salafi women's groups in the UK, Anabel Inge provides an in-depth account of their lives, probing the reasons for their conversion and their subsequent dilemmas and difficulties.
