Sahar Khamis “Arab Women’s Shifting Identities, Ongoing Activism(s) and Parallel Struggles”
September 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Arab Women’s Shifting Identities, Ongoing Activism(s) and Parallel Struggles
Sahar Khamis, University of Maryland
About the talk:
This talk will be centered around Sahar Khamis last co-edited book, Arab Women’s Activism and Socio-Political Transformation: Unfinished Gendered Revolutions.
Nine years after the eruption of the Arab Spring movements, it is mandatory to revisit Arab women’s changing realities and shifting identities, and how and why they led to the birth of new forms of gendered activism(s) and resistance(s), both inside the Arab region and in the diaspora. This talk tackles the potentials and limitations and strengths and weaknesses of Arab women’s multiple forms of grassroots gendered activism(s), online and offline, in the region and in the diaspora, as well as through different phases before, during, and after the Arab Spring uprisings.
