The master degree paper is devoted to the study of the strategies of establishing female authority in Muslim societies. The interest to this issue is caused by the increase in the number of female authorities in recent decades across different countries and the necessity for the scientific substantiation of this practice. The author analyzes examples of female authority that have existed for many centuries and now, and identifies three ways to form authority: the closeness to male authority, getting education and horizontally built authority. Further review of these strategies, spheres of influence they define and the degree of transformation over the centuries allows us to come to conclusion that the increase in the number of female authorities is due to the transformation of old strategies instead of the appearance of new ones. Transformation is primarily associated with the impact of new technologies and social modernization.
