Feminism first appeared in western world and from there it spreaded around the globe, among other also in islamic world. At first it appeared there at the end of nineteenth century, when secularism was enforced in society and also in politics. So the first form of feminism was secular, because it wanted to exceed religious frames, which were seen as a source of women oppresion. At the second half of twentieth century in islamic society great changes happened. Secular nationalism did not bring desired changes, therefore political islam rose at that point. As a consequence a new form of feminism was formed: islamic feminism. It belongs to the third wave of feminism, which emphasised globality and diversity of feminism. This encouraged women in islamic world, that the sexual equality can be found within the context of their own faith and culture. Islamic feminism is founded on belief that islam and it's holy book Quran is based on egalitarian principles and that the reason for oppresing women is patriarchal intepretation of it. Representatives of islamic feminism are among others academicians, who offer new interpretations of Quran, that establish equality between men and women and so they question traditional interpretations of Quran.
