Publisher Comments:

This collection introduces the reader to the women of Arab/Palestinian society, their social and political roles, and the challenges they face. In her introduction, Suha Sabbagh outlines the role of women in the struggles of Gaza and the West Bank. She demonstrates that neither the international media nor Arab commentators have accurately assessed the contributions of women's institutions or the support of traditional women for the Intifada. What impact will the politicization of these traditional women have on the predicated social transformations in the emerging Palestinian state? Will the women seek to alter their role in society, and what will be the response to their attempts? The essays in this multidisciplinary work, written from an "insider's" perspective, seek to answer these questions.

Synopsis:

"... takes a new look at the situation in one of the hottest spots on the globe and asks what impact the politicization of women will have on the lives of people in the emerging Palestinian state." --NWSA Journal

This volume introduces the reader to the social and political roles and challenges faced by women of Arab/Palestinian society. Even Arabic commentators have failed to accurately assess the contributions of women within the struggles of Gaza and the West Bank. These essays, written from an "insider's" perspective, show how Palestinian women confront issues of gender, feminism, and the national agenda.

Suha Sabbagh teaches Women's Studies at the Foreign Students program at Birzeit University on the West Bank and is the former director of the Institute for Arab Women's Studies in Washington D.C. She has published extensively on gender in the Arab world and in Arabic literature and is the author of Arab Women Between Defiance and Restraint.
