This book is published by the Women and Memory Forum as part of the “Feminist Translations” series. This series translates into Arabic knowledge produced by Western academics and organizations in order to increase its visibility and encourage intellectual interaction, understanding, critique, and application.
This book seeks to define gender from a feminist perspective and contains a selection of articles and studies that include theoretical work, analysis, and experiential accounts.
The book is divided into three sections. The first section addresses gender-related theoretical work and methodological approaches; the second section consists of studies of gender in contemporary contexts with a focus on the Middle East and the Arab world; and the third and final section contains a selection of notable articles, published in Arabic, addressing aspects of gender that influence the lives of Egyptian women, including sexual rights, experiences of sexual violence, and the presence of women in public space.
As a volume in the “Feminist Translations” series, we view this book as a contribution to Arabic libraries in general and to those specializing in women’s studies and gender perspectives specifically. We foresee the potential to use this series as an academic reference in postgraduate programs in Arab academic institutions.
