Descrizione
Between 1892 and 1920 nearly thirty Arabic periodicals by, for, and about women were produced in Egypt for circulation throughout the Arab world. In this book, Beth Baron presents the first sustained study of this remarkable material. Showing that the Egyptian women's press was a forum for debating such topics as the rights of woman, marriage and divorce, and veiling and seclusion, Baron sets it in the context of a greater social transformation in the decades before the 1919 revolution and broadens our understanding of the social and cultural history of the period.
