Women Rising

Nadine Naber

NYU Press

Nadine Naber accounts for the ways everyday life engagements with multiple structures of oppression underlined the conditions and the grievances that inspired the participation of many of the women in the Egyptian revolution. She explains how the women workers’ struggles that emerged in 2005 coincided with the struggles against gender injustice. She also relates gender-based demands to broader struggles such as racial justice, anti-imperialism, and anti-authoritarianism and warns against the potential dangers of attaching lesser value to different forms of oppression during different time periods.

Keywords:   Nadine Naber, anti-imperialism, anti-authoritarianism, racial justice, women workers’ struggle
