Description - Gender and National Identity by Valentine M. Moghadam

This collection explores the gender dynamic of political movement, from both theoretical and political angles, to reveal how nationalism, revolution and Islamization are gendered processes. The book focuses on predominantly Muslim movements, and includes Algerian women's experiences in the national liberation movement and more recently; the struggle to construct a Bengali national identity and the creation of Bangladesh; events leading to revolution and Islamization in Iran; revolution and civil war in Afghanistan and the Palestinian Intifada. It deals with the relationship between nationalism and images of women; the role of the "woman question" in revolutionary discourses and programmes; the link between the consolidation of power by new states and laws about women; the significance of polemics and policies about veiling and unveiling; and the relationships between nationalism and feminism, and socialism and feminism. With contributions from academics and activists from the regions covered, this book is an addition to debates on revolution and political change, as well as on gender, Islamism and the Muslim world.
