Daughters of Sarah and Hagar: The Role of Women in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam consider Abraham as a common ancestor. The three traditions are less unified in their view of Sarah and Hagar, the women in Abraham’s family. In fact, these two remarkable women mark the beginnings of the separate paths embraced by the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities. At the same time, Sarah and Hagar have played a crucial role in shaping the understanding of the multi-faceted role of women in the three traditions.
