Practice and nattrative in Gender Relations in Early-Modern Java

Hoadley, Mason LU (2007) In Historia: International Journal of History Education 8(1). p.1-16
Abstract
The article argues that Java's conversion to Islam opened the door for a greater freedom for women with regard to definition as a legal person, including rights to property and unrestricted access to their offspring. This was, however, directly dependent upon how rigorously local society observed the rules found in the sunna and Koran.
