"This book contains many thoughtful, highly relevant, and frequently brilliant essays on the contemporary ideas, organization, activities, and agency of Muslim women in several countries."—Nikki Keddie, professor emerita of Middle Eastern and Iranian history, University of California, Los Angeles

Has Arab Spring made life better for Muslim women? Has new media brought feminists together, or has it become a tool to organize the opposition? This essential collection is updated with a new introduction and two new essays, offering insider views on how Muslim women are navigating technology, social media, public space, secularism/fundamentalism, and citizenship.

Fereshteh Nouraie-Simone is a historian at the American University School of International Service.
