Abstract:

Within anthropological and historical studies of Middle Eastern women, there are often difficulties in overcoming the assumptions embedded in orientalist knowledge. Many of the arguments in the literature revolve around problems of similarity and difference, and in this paper I argue that a solution to these problems can be determined only at the theoretical level. As a contribution toward a theoretical solution, the historical and sociological framework of world-systems theory is used to interpret the economic changes brought about by the introduction of western European capital into Ottoman lands. A speculative model of the impact of capital on the status of Ottoman women is then introduced. I argue that the economic decline of the Ottoman Empire from the eighteenth century onward affected women in gender-specific ways, and that in general, urban women lost the protection of the law upon which their well-being depended.
