Women, gender, and Islam in Indonesia always form a contested site because women's locas in relation to Islam is problematic when their status is seen through the eyes of the practiced Islam. Various interpretations of Islam have managed to denne, locate, and perhaps entrap women under certain fixed categories. Yet, women's position in Islam in Indonesia is never about religious matters alone. The interests and agendas of various social, political, and cultural actors within lhe society play a significant role in shaping the life of public culture. Indeed, within such perspective, Islam is not simply a religious ritual; the spirit of Islamic values can be reflected in all aspects of life, art, and cultural expressions. Nonetheless, despite the vast availability of Islamic productions in guidebooks, magazines, fiction, and popular works, works on the politics of Islamic identity within Indonesian settings are still limited. This also applies to issues concerning women and Islam and their conditioning within Indonesian contexts as portrayed in fiction writing. Not many Muslim writers have raised matters of women in Indonesian Islam in their writings. However, among these few writers, Abidah El Khalieqy fills in some of the blanks in writing about women and Islam in Indonesia. Her gift to Indonesian readers is manifested through her literary works. In this gift she often discusses problems that Muslim women in Indonesia frequently deal with.
