    Islam prohibits the depiction of living beings in religious contexts. However, human and animal representations are permitted on works of art and architectural decorations in a secular setting. But how are women portrayed over the centuries? Do they play a leading role in the artistic repertoire? Do they convey positive or negative messages? In this short course we will try to answer these questions by considering some of the most notable examples of women representations in various media.
