This chapter is told through the narrative voice of the late Rula Quawas, a professor of literature and feminist theory at the University of Jordan. She discusses how her teaching experience led her to see education as a weapon within discourses of social justice and cultural transformation. The chapter includes poems written by her students expressing their feminism as Muslim women resisting the patriarchal structures of Jordanian society.
