Egyptian woman kisses a policeman in Cairo

Just a quick post to share some links to share some links to articles and statements regarding the participation of women in the Egyptian uprising.  Most of these are via a Google search.  I did the same search a few days ago and there was almost nothing, and now there are numerous articles, which I think truly attests to the pivotal role that women are playing in this political sea change.

See also earlier pieces on the FPN blog, here and here.

  1. Thanks for linking. Most people assume that women have no agency in the middle east, egypt, etc and that feminism doesn’t exist. Thank you!

  2. That is why FPN believes that it is essential to examine our world from a gendered lens, thanks for your comment!
