While there has been considerable debate about Muslim women in various countries, including their rights, and place in society, few empirical studies have been conducted on the lived experiences of South African Muslim women. The purpose of this study was to understand Muslim women's opinions, perspectives, and experiences of marriage, spousal relationships, and sexual and reproductive decision-making. It was envisaged that the data obtained in the study would contribute to a knowledge base about the lived realities of Muslim women. It is possible that this knowledge base may inform an alternative to the ways in which Muslim women are spoken and written about: by activists, politicians, scholars and religious leaders.
