Synopsis: Ever since the wave of uprisings that swept the Arab world from the end of 2010, Arab women and their role in political transformations have received unprecedented media attention. The copious scrutiny and commentary, however, has yet to result in any serious study of the gender dynamics of political upheaval. 

Rethinking Gender in Revolutions and Resistance is the first book to analyze the interplay between moments of sociopolitical transformation, emerging subjectivities and the different modes of women?s agency in forging new gender norms in the Arab world. With chapters offering gender analysis of power structures and relations written by scholars and activists from countries affected, including Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya, this is an important addition to Middle Eastern gender studies.

Product Description: Ever since the wave of uprisings that swept the Arab world in 2010, Arab women and their role in political transformations have received unprecedented media attention. The copious scrutiny and commentary, however, has yet to result in any serious study of fluctuating gender roles in the Middle East. Rethinking Gender in Revolutions and Resistance is the first book to analyze the shifts in gender roles, relations, and norms that have occurred since the Arab Spring. With chapters written by scholars and activists from the countries affected, including Palestine, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Syria, this is an important addition to Middle Eastern gender studies.
