Women and Media in the Middle East: Power through Self-Expression

Kaelen Wilson-Goldie

Abstract


Four public service announcements promoting literacy in the rural Egyptian village of Kafr Masoud; eight women’s magazines published between the Constitutional Revolution and the Pahlavi era in Iran; ten Egyptian melodramas constructing the woman-as-nation metaphor between the Arab-Israeli conflict and the politics of Islamic fundamentalism; the struggle for women’s right to vote in Kuwait between liberal and religious newspapers; seven Lebanese journalists in conversation about their craft. In eleven chapters, Women and Media in the Middle East: Power through Self-Expression spans a region stretching from Morocco to Iran and material including feature films, government-sponsored television spots, newspapers, internet penetration, non-governmental organizations, documentaries produced by media institutes and the television industry.
