Women in the Middle East and North Africa: Change and Continuity

Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Author: Elhum Haghighat
Type: Book
Date: 2010
Location in CRTDA: Independent Resources and Information Services (IRIS)

This book dispels some of the common views of the homogeneous impact of religion and culture on women, and it does so through the theoretical lense of sociology. The author argues that if Islam were the single greatest predictor of women’s social status, then, women’s status across the Arab region would be similar rather than dissimilar.
