Synopsis: 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.
About the Author: Maha El Said is professor of American studies at Cairo University. Lena Meari is assistant professor of social and behavioral science and the Institute of Women?s Studies at Birzeit University, Palestine. Nicola Pratt is associate professor of international politics of the Middle East at Warwick University, UK.
