"[T]his work should be applauded as the first sustained analysis of the phrase 'beat them' in the Sunni exegetical and legal sources from the medieval and modern periods. Chaudhry has exposed the variation in interpretations on this command admirably, and has managed to write a book that is as enjoyable to read as it is interesting. Though it engages with the tradition, this book also represents a theological response to a difficult Qur'anic passage, and is an important contribution to the growing movement of Muslim feminist reinterpretations of the Qu'ran." -- Karen Bauer, Journal of Qur'anic Studies
"A model feminist volume that shows that all religious ideas are subject to analysis, dynamic in their meanings, and open to change." - Women's Alliance for Theology, Ethics, and Ritual

is clearly represented in Islamic texts, it clearly fails as the author is really grasping at soap bubbles!
Mohammed strongly denigrated the both the value and equality of women not only because he
was the product of a patriarchal society - but because he was seeking power as most war lords do.
Giving men most power in those days was one way to gain serious obedient and blind followers.
We can always find a rare so called expert to support out point of view , but as many have said to me'
"what is the real consensus of Islamic scholars?"
More to the point - the Islamic ideology and goals do not leave much room for consensus, tolerance
or equality with women or anyone else for that matter.
