Rutgers University | RU-N Political Science Professor Nermin Allam, who was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, specializes in social-movement theories and democratic transition, Middle Eastern and North African studies, political Islam, and gender politics. She recently published her first book, Women and the Egyptian Revolution: Engagement and Activism During the 2011 Arab Uprisings, a fascinating multi-year study of the role of women's collective action in the 2011 uprising, which situates the struggle in the context of the larger history of women's rights in that country.
