Parvez, Zarqa, Is ‘feminism’ really helping women’s rights in the Middle East?”, Middle East Monitor, 2019

Debates how intersectional feminism is relevant to the Middle East, in relation to a different conception of class, ethnicity and social status from the West. It examines whether a fixed understanding of feminism – based on a westernized value system - might be detrimental to the achievement of women’s rights in Middle Eastern societies.
