Gender Justice and The Uprisings In the Arab World
Papers from a workshop organized by the ANSD and the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs
This book represents analyses and testimonies presented at the Gender Equality and the Arab Uprisings conference organized by the Arab Network for the Study of Democracy (ANSD) and the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut, March 3 - 5, 2017.
Scholars and activists from different Arab countries address two key questions. First: where do Arab women stand in terms of their enjoyment of their political, civil, and socioeconomic rights six years after the uprisings began? And, second: what impact did the uprisings have on the forms and scopes of women’s activism in the region?
This book is a chance to reflect on the recent changes to women’s activism in the Arab world, and an occasion to share the different lessons learned through the diverse journeys of the differently gendered political transitions taking place in the region. It is also an opportunity to think through what needs to be done to make transitions more inclusive of women and their issues — now and in the future.
