Women, Culture and the January 2011 Egyptian Revolution
Women, Culture and the January 2011 Egyptian Revolution published by Routledge (2017) is one of a series of articles that look at the role of women in the 2011 Egyptian Revolution from a critical perspective. Chapter 7 focuses on the relationship between gender and nation as depicted in three texts by three contemporary Egyptian women writers who represent three generations. The chapter explores how these writers opt to represent their experience of the first eighteen days of 2011 in ways that problematize the issues of essentialism and anti-essentialism in feminist and nationalist discourse.
