This chapter frames the discussion on resistance, revolution, and reform as three theoretical concepts that are addressed in this volume. The Arab Spring events brought new challenges to the fields of feminism, social revolutions, and gender politics as we know them. Editors Rita Stephan and Mounira M. Charrad deliver the voices of activists and politicians as they fight for reforms, resist oppression, and engage in protests and revolutions to change regimes. This introduction features the historical, geographical, and thematic spaces of women’s agency before, during, and after the events of the Arab Spring.

Keywords:   women’s agency, social revolutions, gender politics
