This chapter points out areas where the feminist and Islamist women’s movements are overlapping or divided along ideological lines. It talks about the state’s intervention to reform the family law mudawwana, which increased the internal divisions and tensions between the Islamist and feminist women’s movements in Morocco. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the interactions between women’s movements that were limited by the context of the struggles over the reform of the mudawwana, examining the intersections of Islamist and feminist activism that open new perspectives for further research on the dialectics of movements and the conceptual boundaries of feminist and Islamist politics.

Keywords:   feminism, Islamist women, mudawwana, Morocco, Islamist politics, women’s movements, family law
