Abstract

This study makes a theoretical contribution around classifying Muslim women’s strategies to contest sexual role segregation and division of labour at work and in society. Syrian women accountants (SWAs) in this study employed “defensive”, “offensive” and “authentic” strategies to contest patriarchal interpretations of Islam regarding their roles. Findings will also provide institutions and society with valuable insights for considering women’s issues outside the Western context, especially linking issues of gender, work and religion.
