Abstract

Living through and writing on a hirak (an organized but unstructured popular movement, with no internal hierarchy or leadership) as a historical event is a great opportunity for a feminist researcher to contribute to scientific knowledge by analyzing the terrain of mobilization and women’s participation in political change in Algeria. This article is based on interviews and participant observation, and attempts to describe the role of feminists’ engagement in a popular uprising, including their demands and means of mobilization. The article thus hopes to demonstrate how the hirak created a new impetus for the unification of feminist forces.
