From Political Authoritarianism to Sectarianism and Islamist Militancy

Women Rising

Nadje Al-Ali

NYU Press

In this chapter, Nadje Al-Ali explores Iraqi women’s agency in the context of severely curtailed living conditions due, historically, to dictatorship, economic sanctions, wars, occupation, invasion, and, recently, increasing sectarianism, authoritarianism, and Islamist militancy, including ISIS. One of the main arguments is that the structural conditions that have limited women’s agency need to be explored through an intersectional lens.

Keywords:   authoritarianism, sectarianism, Islamist militancy, Nadje Al-Ali
