Abstract:

This book examines the nature of social change in the Middle East, the impact of that change on women's legal status and social positions, and women's responses to and involvement in processes of change. The author also examines constructions of gender during periods of social and political change. An overview chapter offers a historical context for nationalism and women, revolutions and women's rights, and Islamist movements and family law. Later chapters examine globalization and women's economic citizenship, patriarchy in crisis, and gender and war in Palestine, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Reflecting the many recent changes in the region, this third edition includes new chapters on the Arab Spring and women's rights activism, and new emphasis on the impacts of globalization and democracy.--adapted from Book News description.
