Women and Islamic Feminism in the Middle East: Time to Change Perception?

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

The terms “Arab Feminism” or “Islamic Feminism” are sometimes perceived as oxymorons by westerners, but the past decade has seen a change.

Since the events of the Arab Spring, we have witnessed shifts and new trends across Arab and Muslim societies in the Middle East.

These have led to a sort of renegotiation between forces of tradition and forces of modernization. Social norms have been challenged and we have seen clashes between conservative and liberal values and perceptions. Ideological-political conflicts have erupted between secular-nationalist groups and the more religiously-inclined sectors of these societies.

Join the National Library of Israel online for a fascinating discussion:

“Women and Islamic Feminism in the Middle East: Time to Change Perception?”
