9780813014296: The Mobilization of Muslim Women in Egypt

Egypt was the first country in the Middle East to experience the full impact of Westernization and the accompanying clash of ideologies.  In the 1990s, few adhere to the notion that secular and Western-oriented regimes have advanced the case for women there.  This study is the first to examine the feminist issue in the context of Egypt's democratic crisis, faltering economy, and deteriorating sectarian relations. Using Arabic sources, Ghada Talhami pursues an authentic, indigenous analysis and produces a cultural study bridging politics, religion, anthropology, and sociology.

Book Description:

"A brilliant analysis. . . . Essential reading for those interested in modern Egypt, Islamic resurgence, and feminism in the developing world."--Tamara Sonn, University of South Florida


Egypt was the first country in the Middle East to experience the full impact of Westernization and the accompanying clash of ideologies.  In the 1990s, few adhere to the notion that secular and Western-oriented regimes have advanced the case for women there.  This study is the first to examine the feminist issue in the context of Egypt's democratic crisis, faltering economy, and deteriorating sectarian relations. Using Arabic sources, Ghada Talhami pursues an authentic, indigenous analysis and produces a cultural study bridging politics, religion, anthropology, and sociology.
 Talhami examines the deliberate intensification of Islamic identity and its ramifications both for Muslim women and for Egypt's Coptic Christian minority. She pays careful attention to the Coptic mobilization of the '50s, '60s, and '70s, and their clashes with Muslims, which led to Islamic redefinition of women's rights and looks especially at the secular feminist reforms initiated by Jihan Sadat, the widow of Anwar Sadat.
