Modernizing women : gender and social change in the Middle East by Valentine M Moghadam( Book )
30 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 1,607 libraries worldwide
Valentine Moghadam's seminal study of the gendered nature of political and social processes in the Middle East and North Africa has been fully updated to reflect more than a decade of major changes. This new edition reflects an emphasis on the impacts of both globalization and democratization. It also includes entirely new chapters on the gender dynamics of conflicts in the region, on women and the Arab Spring, and on the achievements of women's rights movements. The result is an indispensable contribution to our understanding of current popular struggles for modernity, democratization, and meaningful citizenship
Globalization and social movements : Islamism, feminism, and the global justice movement by Valentine M Moghadam( Book )
26 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 825 libraries worldwide
"Deftly combining nuanced theory with rich empirical examples, leading scholar Valentine M. Moghadam shows how both physical and electronic mobility has helped to create dynamic global social movements. Exploring the historical roots of Islamism, feminism, and global justice, the book also shows how these movements have been stimulated by relatively recent globalization processes, including neoliberalism, war, and hegemonic masculinities. Moghadam examines similarities and differences among the three movements, along with internal differentiation within each. Her argument is informed by feminism, world-systems, world polity, and social movement theories in a seamlessly integrated framework that will be essential reading for all students of globalization."--Jacket
Globalizing women : transnational feminist networks by Valentine M Moghadam( Book )
15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 698 libraries worldwide
Identity politics and women : cultural reassertions and feminisms in international perspective by Valentine M Moghadam( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 518 libraries worldwide
The premise that identity politics concern with gender, religion, race and nation has replaced the issue of class as the central focus of politics around the world is the starting point for this collection of essays. It is of particular interest because many of the 13 case studies of gender politics are of Muslim or South Asian countries, where the feminist agenda often clashes head-on with the local religious or nationalist agenda and where the reassertion of cultural identities against the West often comes at the expense of women. This book is valuable for describing these clashes in detail; it would have been much better, however, had it acknowledged more forthrightly the internal contradiction between feminism and opposition to the imperialism of universal Western values. from Foreign Affairs (May/ June 1994)

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 463 libraries worldwide

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 377 libraries worldwide
Offering 20 studies on instances of emerging social justice and women's empowerment in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia, this text shows how changes are occurring as capital, people, and information erode entrenched gender regimes, giving birth to energetic and forward-thinking women's movements
Patriarchy and economic development : women's positions at the end of the twentieth century ( Book )
18 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 348 libraries worldwide
The chapters in this book were written for a UNU/WIDER research conference convened to explore two parallel phenomena: the changing position of women and gender relations and the relevance of the concept of patriarchy, and the impact of development - and especially industrialization and wage work - on women and gender. They address these questions through theoretical, historical, and empirical approaches, and provide critical analysis and macro- and micro-level data for East Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian subcontinent, the Nordic region, and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The contributors are well-known academics and researchers who utilize the methods of economics, sociology, history, and feminist analysis in their case studies of economic development and women's positions
Democratic reform and the position of women in transitional economies by Valentine M Moghadam( Book )
13 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 322 libraries worldwide
Democratic Reform and the Position of Women explores the effects of the post-1989 developments in Eastern and Central Europe and the former Soviet Union on the social, economic, and political position of the women of these countries. It explains how the economic crisis, collapse of communism, social breakdown, and changing institutions and practices of the state have an impact upon women's roles and status
Gender and development in the Arab world : women's economic participation : patterns and policies ( Book )
9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 315 libraries worldwide
This volume aims at remedying the relative dearth of studies addressing issues of women and development in Arab countries. One major concern of its authors is to improve the statistical information available by including the often omitted aspect of disaggregation by gender - an essential task if women's actual and potential contribution to development is to be assesed. This, in turn, requires improved statistical collection and empirical research on women's economic participation. These studies are also concerned to understand the structural features which may explain Arab women's varying labour-force participation rates and to dispel widespread stereotypes vis-a-vis their economic position
Global employment : an international investigation into the future of work by M Simai( Book )
21 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 252 libraries worldwide
Making globalization work for women : the role of social rights and trade union leadership by Valentine M Moghadam( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 libraries worldwide
Describes the potential for trade unions to defend the socioeconomic rights of women in a global context. Looking at labor policies and interviews with people in unions and nongovernmental organizations, the essays explore the problems faced by women workers across the world and the progress that unions in various countries have made in responding to those problems. Some concerns addressed are: the masculine culture of many unions and the challenges of female leadership within them, laissez-faire governance, and the limited success of organizations working on these issues globally
Social policy in the Middle East : economic, political, and gender dynamics ( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
"Countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), like other developing countries, are being transformed under the forces of globalization. The old economic models and strategies have been questioned and largely abandoned. New socio-economic relations are being forged, but no coherent vision and strategy of development is yet in place. Since the 1980s, and in the co-called post oil-boom era, most countries in the region have been facing a crisis of integration in the global economy. In the large and growing literature on economic reforming the MENA region, social policy has often taken a back seat. It is treated as a residual, or an afterthought to economic reform, in the shape of safety nets or safeguards to reintegrate the marginalized groups who are dislocated by the reform process. In contrast, this book shows that gender-sensitive social policy is likely to play a critical role both in the resolution of social conflicts during the present transition period, and in the formation and long-term functioning of the new economic systems that are taking shape. This volume brings 'social' back as a central theme in the analysis of economic reform in the MENA region."--Jacket

Women, work, and ideology in post-revolutionary Iran by Valentine M Moghadam( Book )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
The paper is a quantitative and qualitative analysis of Islamic ideology and female employment in Iran today. The Islamic regime's ideology regarding women's roles (as well as the inconsistencies within it) are examined and contrasted with women's employment patterns. Also, today's employment patterns are compared with those before the Revolution. The paper shows that much of the initial rhetoric discouraging female employment and attempting to impose an ideology of domesticity has not been successful. Although labor participation rates have declined for women, they have declined even more for men. The female share of the urban labor force has not altered, however, and government employment for women is actually higher today than it was before the Revolution. The paper identifies a discrepancy between ideological prescriptions and economic imperatives
Empowering women after the Arab Spring by Marwa Shalaby( Book )
4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
This book sheds light on some of the most critical issues impeding the advancement of women's rights post Arab Spring, such as patriarchy, barriers to women's agency in the legal and socioeconomic realms, women's access to the decision-making process, citizenship rights, and the impact of conflict on women's status. It offers a distinct perspective that takes into account the diversity of the Arab world and presents a theoretical framework on the study of women's empowerment amid the transformations that have shaped the social and political fabrics of Arab societies. Empowering Women after the Arab Spring represents cutting-edge research from a variety of academic disciplines -- anthropology, political science, and sociology -- and presents comparative analyses from places including the United Arab Emirates, Syria, Egypt, and Tunisia. This volume offers one of the first systematic efforts to combine qualitative and quantitative research to draw a more accurate picture of the realities of Middle Eastern women.
