Women's Voices in the Modern Middle East

This website hosts a collection of resources that presents the diversity of women's lives throughout the Middle East and North Africa and challenges common notions of Middle Eastern women as passive and oppressed. The collection includes a comprehensive background essay that traces the role of women throughout the historical development of the region. It also features three videos with background information, key terms and a detailed lesson plan with pre and post viewing activities.
