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.
