Zainab’s doctoral research sought to examine the desirability of incorporating polygamy into the United Kingdom’s legal definition of marriage from a feminist perspective. The research was undertaken through a critical examination of the existing English legal framework. The project also involved a qualitative study of women’s experiences of and attitudes towards polygamous and monogamous marriages in the UK.
