Arab Women: From Misconceptions to Reality

Hassan Hammoud

Abstract


For over forty years, most Western and traditional Arab writers dealing with Arab women's concerns, issues, and. problems, adopted a Western discourse that remains for the most part unchallenged. Only recently have two prominent Arab women successfully attempted to dismantle this discourse by deconstructing its basic premises and criticizing its concepts and theories.
