About this title


Explores feminism in Egypt from the 1970s to the present, comparing Islamist, Muslim, and secular feminists' points of view and looking at the theories of Foucault, Gramsci, and others. The author discusses the consequences for feminism of the Nasser, Sadat, and Mubarak regimes. She then looks at the political organization of Egypt's feminists, current debates in the feminist community, male perspectives on such questions as women's right to divorce and women in the workplace, and three generations of women's perspectives on the same questions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
