This article explores the social-political environment within which Islamic discourse in relation to human rights and duties takes place within Malaysia, with a focus on women's rights issues. Contrary to what is sometimes assumed, this article points to greater internal diversity of views within the Muslim community about women's rights issues. It is informed by personal interviews the author conducted with various political leaders and representatives of local women's NGOs.
