Documenting the Role of Women in the 2011 Arab Uprisings


Rutgers University | In early 2011, as part of the larger wave of uprisings sweeping the middle-east and north Africa, millions of Egyptians took to the streets to protest the regime of President Hosni Mubarak in what became known as the January 25 Revolution. Political Science Professor Nermin Allam, who is from Cairo, Egypt, conducted a multi-year study of the role of women's collective action in the uprising, situating this struggle in the context of the larger history of women's rights in that country.
