urban and rural, working class and upper classâcame out in force to Cairoâs Tahrir Square in one of the largest uprisings in the countryâs history. The demonstrators gathered as citizens and likewise as women demanding social change and the right to gender equality. The size and impact of that uprising underscore the vital importance of women activists to what became known as the Arab Spring.
In Resistance, Revolt, and Gender Justice in Egypt, Tadros charts the arc of the Egyptian womenâs movement, capturing the changing dynamics of gender activism over the course of two decades. She explores the interface between feminist movements, Islamist forces, and three regime ruptures in the battle over womenâs status in Egyptian society and politics. Parsing the factors that contribute to the success and failure of activist movements, Tadros provides valuable insight on sustaining social change and a vitally important perspective on womenâs evolving status in a contemporary authoritarian context.
