abstract
This study will examine whether western feminism has influenced regional feminism in Egypt, and if so, in what ways. It is hypothesized that western feminism has influenced Egyptian feminism in negative and positive ways depending on the expressed perspective of the individuals and literature being analyzed. For example, some might feel that western feminism places Egyptian women in a “victims†category, and therefore, rejects it as model of feminism in Egypt. Others might feel that western feminism gives them a framework to build upon in developing their movements. Methods will include identifying Egyptian feminist websites, blogs, and literature to analyze. Then a historical literature review on Egyptian feminism will be compared with western feminist literature review. Subsequently, data gathered on current Egyptian women movements, through viewing Egyptian feminist websites and blogs, will be used to illustrate Egyptian feminists’ rejection or acceptance of western feminism. Data will also be analyzed by identifying and comparing common themes related to the ideological objectives of western and Egyptian feminist movements, and by comparing Egyptian and Western methods of promoting their movements. This examination will be significant because it will expand the knowledge base of feminism and how this discipline relates and differs across regions.
