Women Rising

Samaa Gamie

NYU Press

An influential female figure of the Egyptian revolution, Asmaa Mahfouz was the twenty-eight-year-old who mobilized the April 6th movement and a prominent member of Egypt's Coalition of the Youth of the Revolution. By analyzing the feminist discourse of Asmaa Mahfouz, Samaa Gamie explores the role of Islamic and secular feminism in the emergence of her feminist ethos. She further examines the challenges posed to her ethos in virtual discourses, shedding light on Islamist mechanisms of silencing the female other and discrediting the feminist ethos.

Keywords:   Asmaa Mahfouz, Egyptian revolution, Coalition of the Youth of the Revolution, feminist ethos, Islamic feminism, virtual discourses
