This paper addresses the sharp oppositions often made these days between secularism and gender equality, on the one side, and religion (especially Islam) and the oppression of women, on the other. It argues that we need a genealogy of secularism (in the way Talal Asad has called for it) to determine what the relationship has been historically between the separation of church and state and improvements in the status of women.
