Speaker(s): Dr Aitemad Muhanna-Matar
Chair: Dr Lori Allen

Recorded on 6 November 2014 at Alumni Theatre, New Academic Building

Dr Aitemad Muhanna-Matar presents the findings of field research conducted in five countries (Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Yemen and the occupied Palestinian territory) in 2013. The research focuses on the emergence of young female leaders who have shaped a new form of women’s activism that merges Islamism with feminism. The research reflects on the form of women's leadership that developed during and after the Arab Uprisings and how it could contribute to redefining women's activism and empowerment and its effect on social and gender transformation in Arab countries.
