The status of women in today’s Muslim world continues to spur debates regarding their role.It also raises questions as to whether Muslim women have experienced greater or declining rights and benefits along with that history. This debate takes place in medieval times, as between the ninth and the thirteenth-century thoughts and views about women were shaped by scholars such as al-Ghazālī’, Ibn Rushd, and Ibn Taymiyya.This study attempts to discuss and explore the status of Muslim women in that period of al-Ghazālī’, Ibn Taymiyya, and Ibn Rushd, comparing the effect of their views on today’s thought in regards to women, through discussing the general status of Muslim women today, and examining different Islamic feminist scholars, namely Fatima Mernissi and Nawal Sa’dawi, who discussed women’s status from a different perspective relevant to the medieval era.
