The book covers the main stages of formation and evolution of the female education in Pakistan — one of the globally largest Muslim countries which appeared on the world political map in 1947. Each of the stages reflects the specific historical features of the state social transformation and educational practices with a gender perspective. The study of the female education system evolution was carried out in this monograph by taking into account the increased role of Islam in the Pakistani society after the authorities launched Islamization policy (1977), which contributed much to the split of the women movement in the country and a gradual shift in the direction of the "Islamic feminism" marked by a variety of modernist, traditionalist and sometimes even radical approaches to the gender problems in Pakistan.

The book is meant for scholars, educators, students and all others interested in the politics, education and gender studies of the Muslim countries.
