    Challenging From Within: Youth Associations and Female Leadership in Swedish Mosques2011In: Women, Leadership and Mosques: Changes in Contemporary Islamic Authority / [ed] Masooda Bano, Hilary Kalmbach, Leiden: Brill Academic Publishers, 2011, p. 371-391Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter focuses on women members of the Sunnī-dominated national organization Sweden's Young Muslims (Sveriges Unga Muslimer, SUM) and some of its local youth associations in different Swedish towns, to argue that involvement with these associations is increasing Muslim women's engagement with mosques and other venues for acquisition of Islamic knowledge. Illuminating the continuous challenges to the women's presence in mosques and their wider public activism the chapter examines how these women defend their right to exercise religious authority while supporting the traditional sources of Muslim authority in the public sphere. It analyzes how the women reinterpret the Islamic texts to change their daily lives as well as their position within both the Muslim community and Swedish society as a whole. The chapter emphasizes that in more informal situations, backstage among peers, the women put gender on the agenda, initiate reflexive deliberations, and test alternative norms and practices.

    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, women establish religious authority as they are appointed leaders in Muslim youth associations. Their commitment is intertwined with identity politics, leading their activism out beyond the mosques and classrooms and into civic centres and television studios.

    Ibland ger moskén skydd till slagna kvinnor när samhället svikit2012In: Sveriges television (SVT) Debatt / Opinion, no maj 16Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Publicerad 16 maj, 2012 - 11:19

    Att många religiösa ledare i moskéer ger uttryck för kvinnoförtryckande idéer innebär inte att alla gör det. I min undersökning ingår kvinnors berättelser om hur de i moskén erbjudits just det som samhället borde garantera, nämligen skyddat boende och stöd för dem som vill komma bort från ett våldspräglat hem, skriver Pia Karlsson Minganti.

    Kvinnor som vänder sig till rådgivare i moskéer kan få ta emot direktiv som är präglade av manscentrering och rent kvinnohat. Kvällens Uppdrag granskning visar exempel på detta. Utan att själv ha haft möjlighet att se programmet i sin helhet kan jag förutse starka reaktioner och krav på åtgärder. Jag arbetar själv mot könsförtryck, anser att våld och tvång ska polisanmälas och att redan existerande lagstiftning bör tillämpas. Med utgångspunkt i min egen forskning bland medlemmar i muslimska ungdomsföreningar i Sverige tror jag emellertid att debatten nu kan tjäna på att jag bidrar med perspektiv på moskéer som mer än endast arenor för misogyni.

    Insikten om att kategorin muslim samlar en miljard människor med alla tänkbara ideologiska orienteringar borde idag vara en självklarhet. På samma sätt är muslimska församlingar präglade av variation. Att många (just nu de flesta?) religiösa ledare i moskéer ger uttryck för kvinnoförtryckande idéer innebär inte att alla gör det. Inte heller innebär det att imamerna ifråga har kvinnoförtryck som uttalad målsättning eller aldrig verkar för kvinnors rättigheter. Verkligheten är som bekant komplex.

    En viktig poäng i sammanhanget är att islamiska rådgivare allt oftare är kvinnor. Internationell forskning visar på en samtida trend där kvinnor etablerar auktoritet i moskéer och organisationer, och virtuellt på internet. Det sker på eget initiativ, men även genom uppmuntran från manliga företrädare och genom statliga initiativ. De flesta bidrar som volontärer, som till exempel de ungdomsledare som runt om i Sverige engagerar ungdomar i allt från islamstudier till läxhjälp och alternativa helgaktiviteter på behörigt avstånd från alkohol och droger. Inom sina föreningar fungerar kvinnorna som beslutsfattare och organisatörer, som styrelseledamöter och ordföranden. De deltar också i andra offentliga sammanhang som föredragshållare och debattörer och samarbetspartners i olika projekt. Många av dessa projekt har till syfte att motverka diskriminering på grundval av kön, hudfärg och religiös tro.

    Kvinnornas religiösa engagemang kan liknas vid den kristna väckelserörelsen. Kvinnor, ungdomar och andra marginaliserade grupper sluter sig samman och studerar Koranen utan direkt inblandning av konventionella auktoriteter. De islamiska källorna används för att genomdriva förändringar och för att försvara bland annat kvinnors rättigheter. För många framstår våld mot kvinnor som en absurditet, helt oförenlig med islam. Vad jag försöker frammana här är en kontext där kvinnor kan instrueras att inte polisanmäla en misshandlande make, men där samtidigt andra typer av råd ges av olika tongivande personer och även hjälp att fly ut ur akuta våldssituationer. I min undersökning ingår kvinnors berättelser om hur medlemmar i moskéförsamlingar har erbjudit just det som samhället borde garantera, nämligen skyddat boende och stöd för dem som vill komma bort från ett våldspräglat hem.

    Det är bra att media granskar representanter i moskéer. Kritik kan bidra positivt till utvecklingen av islam i Sverige och motverka att män med destruktiv syn på könsrelationer fortsätter att dominera. Men det är viktigt att kritiken inte är ensidig eller fragmentarisk. När kvinnoförtryck såsom nedtystat våld och sexuellt tvång bland muslimer debatteras är även en annan form av förtryck närvarande: förtrycket mot muslimer som grupp. Det finns en tendens i dagens samhälle att peka ut muslimer som ett exceptionellt hot – mot kvinnor, homosexuella, judar, ”vanligt folk” och samhället i stort. Stigmatisering får flera olyckliga konsekvenser.

    För det första riskerar kvinnoförtryck i andra sammanhang att osynliggöras. I vilka andra miljöer borde tevereportage med dold kamera göras för att blotta de tänkesätt som leder till kvinnors lidande och död? Det är naturligtvis provocerande i sammanhanget, men erinra etnologen Jesper Fundbergs forskning om hur pojkfotboll fostrar unga i en miljö som knappast har gjort upp med sin sexism, rasism och homofobi. När gav den muslimkritiske debattören senast sitt stöd till en kvinnojour, med ett erkännande ord, praktiskt handtag eller rentav ekonomiskt bidrag? För det andra, politiska entreprenörer i islamofobi slår mynt av att muslimer pekas ut som det primära hotet. Sverigedemokrater hörs plötsligt försvara kvinnors, homosexuellas och judars rättigheter med hjälp av feministiska och antirasistiska argument med udden riktad mot muslimer och islam. För det tredje visar forskning på en tendens bland kvinnor i utsatta minoriteter att sluta upp bakom mansdominerade ledarskikt i syfte att värna gruppens väl, även om de samtidigt är kritiska mot dessa mäns tolkningar och praktiker. Att ensidigt förknippa islam med fenomen som våld mot kvinnor kan alltså få starkt negativa konsekvenser för prioriteringen av muslimska kvinnors välfärd.

    Våren 2010 debatterades riksorganisationen Sveriges Unga Muslimers val av gästföreläsare till sin årliga konferens. Den tänkta gästen förknippades med homofoba yttranden och debatten resulterade i att Ungdomsstyrelsen granskade ett antal bidragsberättigade religiösa ungdomsorganisationer för eventuell diskriminering mot homosexuella. Förutom Sveriges Unga Muslimer prövades även Ungdomsinitiativet inom Syrisk-ortodoxa ärkestiftet, Riksförbundet unga katoliker, Evangeliska frikyrkans och Pingstkyrkans ungdomssektioner. Granskningen av gruppernas formella handlingar gav inga skäl till att dra tillbaka deras statsbidrag och ingen fördjupad kontroll av enskilda medlemmars uttalanden gjordes. Exemplet visar att omfattningen av statlig granskning vägs mot människors grundlagsstadgade rättighet att organisera sig efter egna intressen och behov. Enskilda förgrundsgestalter är inte synonyma med sina samfund. I samma anda menar jag att tilltro till muslimers, kvinnor inräknade, förmåga att debattera, förhandla, tänja på och motstå förtryck gör det rimligt att framhålla muslimska församlingar och föreningar, inte bara som arenor för misogyni, utan även som plattformar för aktivt medborgande. En sådan tilltro bottnar också i insikten att det är möjligt att förändra de mest seglivade normer. Det visar inte minst den kriminalisering av våldtäkt inom äktenskapet som till slut skedde i Sverige 1965.

    Introducing "Fourth Space": Young Muslims Negotiating Marriage in Europe2016In: Ethnologia Europaea, ISSN 0425-4597, E-ISSN 1604-3030, Vol. 46, no 1, p. 40-57Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on interviews with young persons in two national Muslim youth organizations in Europe, this article examines how young Muslims negotiate between the cultural customs of their societiesof origin, their everyday experiences in Europe, and the global Muslim public sphere. In seekinga universal “true” core of Islam, these young persons create their own version of Islam, a “fourthspace” in which they reinterpret the authoritative source texts of Islam in light of personal diasporicexperiences in Europe. This reinterpretation becomes particularly pertinent in the context of planningfor future marriage, where they jointly construct new understandings of Islam to argue for inter-ethnic marriages and later age at marriage, to argue against coercion in arranged marriages, tooppose polygyny and to portray the stigmatization of divorce as counter to the true spirit of Islam.

    Matrimoni contestati: Giovani musulmani in contesti transnazionali2010In: Mondi Migranti, ISSN 1972-4888, Vol. 11, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [it]

    Nella ricerca accademica si presta sempre più attenzione al fenomeno del raggiungimento dell’età adulta tra i musulmani di seconda e terza generazione presenti in Europa. Quest’articolo tratta in particolare dei membri delle associazioni islamiche giovanili esistenti in Svezia e in Italia. Presenterò qui un mio nuovo progetto di ricerca, finalizzato allo studio delle trattative sulla pianificazione dei loro matrimoni: con chi, quando, dove e come. Le trattative in questione riguardano l’idea che i giovani hanno del matrimonio islamico, idea che si è venuta formando nel quadro delle emergenti sfere pubbliche dell'Islam. Inoltre, nelle negoziazioni sono coinvolti membri appartenenti a famiglie transnazionali e a network etnici, che hanno orientamenti religiosi diversi e diverse motivazioni nella pianificazione matrimoniale. Poiché i giovani musulmani vivono in Europa, i loro matrimoni sono influenzati anche dagli atteggiamenti e dalle condizioni della società che li circonda. Strutturato in forma di indagine comparata, questo progetto si basa su interviste di carattere qualitativo e osservazioni partecipative tra i giovani attivisti musulmani di due paesi europei: Svezia e Italia. La questione centrale delle trattative di matrimonio, è qui presa in esame a partire da ideali, desideri, obblighi e condizioni dei singoli giovani. Tale questione è intesa come un punto di osservazione strategico per l’esame degli aspetti significativi del cambiamento in corso. Da questo punto di osservazione, si ha modo di vedere come le azioni delle persone nella quotidianità si colleghino a processi societari di globalizzazione e alla riorganizzazione delle relazioni di genere.

    Muslim Women Managing Women's Shelters: Somaya, the Muslimwoman and Religion as Resource2015In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 23, no 2, p. 93-108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on Sisters’ Shelter Somaya in Sweden, an organization unique in its claim to be a women’s shelter by and for Muslim women, and in its combining of Islamic and secular feminisms. Examining the organization’s self-presentations, the author argues that there is, however, an ongoing shift from an emphasis on its Muslim profile to a dissolution of the very same. Looking into potential loss in the process (for clients, activists, allies, and feminism at large), the analysis draws on current research on anti-Muslim intolerance and normative secularism. The concept of the “Muslim woman” is employed to illustrate the stereotyping that continuously associates Muslim women with “victims” inhabiting shelters rather than capable “managers”. Intersectionality is pointed at as an emic strategy adopted by Somaya to overcome division, but also critically analysed as a consensus-creating signifier that hinders diversity. Thus,the article raises the increasingly important issue of the relationship between religion, gender, and feminism in the post-secular turn, and the author calls for critical self-reflection and creative affirmation in the interaction with heterogeneous others.

    Muslima: Islamisk väckelse och unga kvinnors förhandlingar om genus i det samtida Sverige2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is an analysis of interviews with and observations among young women in Sunni Muslim youth associations in today’s Sweden. The aim is to understand the women’s possibilities to act as individuals, as women and as members of religious/ethnic minorities. Postcolonial and gender theories are herewith combined to point at tensions among such social positions as well as between said theoretical perspectives. The examination of the women’s agency is performed through an analysis of their negotiations on gender, at the intersection with religion, “race”/ethnicity, age and generation. As indicated in the title of the book – Muslima (feminine form of the Arabic word “Muslim”) – the women are involved in complex processes of positioning, representation and lived experience. This ethnographic study of nine individuals has been aptly conceived in order to supply useful insights about such complexity, challenging the sweeping simplification of the women’s statements that often takes place in one-sided debates. Accordingly, the study illustrates empowering as well as hindering conditions for the women in an Islamic revivalist movement. It shows how they as pious activists gain authority in relation to non-Muslims and “cultural” Muslims such as family members. At the same time it offers insights about how the ethics of honor and shame are reproduced in relation to dominant gender orders in Sweden, former home countries and the global Islamic revival. Thus the women’s local diasporic experiences are stressed, along with transnational and global aspects, without which the women could not be adequately understood. Ultimately the women’s claim for recognition as subjects with agency is discussed in relation to contemporary debates on multiculturalism, identity politics and cultural citizenship.

    Abstract [sv]

    Snart tjugo miljoner muslimer lever i Europa, och runt 300 000 i Sverige. Knappt fyra procent av Sveriges befolkning är muslimer, och bara en liten del av dem utövar sin religion, är praktiserande. Men alla muslimer, oavsett grad av religiositet, behandlas ungefär på samma sätt. De möts av fördomar, okunskap och hat. Detta konstaterande låter journalisten och författaren Kerstin Gustafsson Figueroa bli utgångspunkt för en antologi -För Guds skull. Muslimer i Sverige -fylld av personliga samtal med människor bakom stereotypierna.

    Abstract [en]

    In the first half of the twentieth century, only a limited number of women were involved in Swedish ethnological research at an advanced academic level. One of them was Märta Hedlund (1913–1944), who was part of the academic circle around the prominent professor of regionalethnology, Sigurd Erixon, at the University College of Stockholm. Sadly, she died young, before she was able to complete her work. This article recalls Hedlund as a pioneer in the study of peasant trade and modes of enculturation within the rural families of such traders. We argue that Hedlund, with her orientation towards American social anthropology and economic history, managed to introduce topics and perspectives that would come into vogue only decades later. Furthermore, a rereading is offered of her scant biographical data and professional output through the lens of intersectional gender theory, to provide a complementary view of why, for so long, her work was forgotten.

    Diversity and the Politics of Visibility among Young Muslim Women in Sweden2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Becoming key symbols for diversity in Norden, young Muslims are struggling for recognition as full citizens while reclaiming their senses of multifaceted identities and belongings. This paper examines young women who act and speak as ‘Muslims’ in Sweden, either by engaging in Muslim youth organizations or through actively engendering public visibility through frequent media appearances. Drawing on ethnological fieldwork, the paper illuminates how these young women are affected by various politics of visibility and representation. The analysis revolves around three central arguments: 1) there has been a shift from adult Muslim men and women converts as public front-figures, to the young ones now inhabiting this representative position; 2) particularly young women are involved in such ‘identity politics’, which leads beyond the frames of their local youth associations and into TV studios and other mass media; 3) these women’s fashion looks are being developed and made public in close relation to mass media.

    Abstract [sv]

    Många muslimska kvinnor utsatts för ett omfattande förtryck med våld som yttersta sanktion. Somliga skulle säga att alla muslimska kvinnor utsatts för förtryck. Återigen andra skule säga att överhuvudtaget alla kvinnor i majoriteten av världens kulturer i någon form är förtryckta. Debatten om kvinnors möjligheter och rättigheter har förts upp på den samhällspolitiska agendan och attraherar allt fler deltagare. I svensk samhällsdebatt ägnas den muslimska slöjan som symbol för repression ett relativt stort utrymme och engagerar människor på såväl akademisk, politisk som vardaglig nivå. Detta innefattar svenskar utan egna erfarenheter av utövande av islamiska påbud, svenska konvertiter utan erfarenheter av att leva i muslimska samhällen och muslimer vars erfarenheter har formatt dem att aktivt ta ställning mot slojan. I denna uppsats vill jag, utan normativa förtecken, låta två muslimska kvinnor med ett till synes mer positivt eller neutralt förhållande till slöjan komma till tals. Syftet ar att undersöka deras relation till slöjan och hur denna eventuellt förändras i en svensk kontext. Genom att ge kvinnornas berättelser om deras egen praktik och erfarenhet utrymme hoppas jälva och med andra informanter hade andra perspektiv på denna komplexa frågeställning hamnat i fokus.

    Youth, Religion and Participation: Theoretical and Methodological Approaches2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This roundtable session focus on religious and social change as well as democracy and political culture, startingfrom the role of youth in these processes. The role of religion in young people’s participation is a key theme inthe cross-disciplinary network “youth and religion” connected to the Impact program. Participation here includesboth citizens’ “vertical” capacities to make their voices heard and influence decision-makers in the political system(e.g. via elections or civic organizations and social movements) and their “horizontal” capacities to communicateand cooperate with other people (within society at large or certain associations/communities). The participants ofthe session will present influential theories and methodologies used to study participation among youth within theresearch disciplines they represent (i.e. sociology of religion; theology; ethnology; political science). This will befollowed by a joint discussion of how these theories and methodologies have approached religious involvement witha particular focus on youth’s participation in politics, civil society as well as social media and the internet. The aim ofthe session is to look for common themes and new issues that can guide contemporary studies of participation in thefield of youth and religion. The session is open to conference participants interested in the issues discussed.
