Summary
The book is organized along thematic lines that reflect major focuses of research in this area - gender and work, gender and the state, gender and law, gender and religion, and feminist movements - and each chapter is written by a scholar who has done original research on the topic. Although structured around the individual author's own work, the chapters also include overviews and assessments of other research, highlights of ongoing debates and key issues, and comparisons across regions of the Middle East
