In this chapter, Aminah Ali Kandar suggests that women were the main drivers of the Yemeni uprising by discussing how women activists assumed leadership positions during the uprisings in Yemen. She highlights the leadership of four specific activist women during this period, and explores the role these women played during the uprisings. She examines their initiatives and organization of protests, their strategic ways of communicating, and the spread of their social media campaigns.
