Essays contain discussions of the blogs written by way of younger women in Egypt, the Women2Drive crusade in Saudi Arabia, the reintegration of ladies into the general public sphere in Yemen, the sexualization of girl protesters encamped at Bahrain's Pearl Roundabout, and the embodied, performative, and creative areas of Morocco's 20 February stream.
