Mapping Arab Women's Movements: A Century of Transformations from Within
This pioneering collection of analyses focuses on the ideologies and activities of formal women‚àö√Øs organizations and informal women‚àö√Øs groups across a range of Arab countries. With contributions on Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq, Egypt, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen, and the Arab diaspora in the United States, Mapping Arab Women‚àö√Øs Movements contributes to delineating similarities and differences between historical and contemporary efforts toward greater gender justice. The authors explore the origins of women‚àö√Øs movements, trace their development during the past century, and address the impact of counter-movements, alliances, and international collaborations within the region and beyond, providing accessible accounts for scholars and others interested in the Middle East and in women‚àö√Øs movements in other settings.
