Who Am I? Mizrahi Discourse on Identity in Contemporary Israel
Languages of publication
The Arab Spring has opened new channels for expressing political demands. Under the liberal guise covered by the international media, a number of political struggles of different citizens groups are hidden. Womens groups are often one set of main actors that remain backstage. The subject of my research concerns new grassroots groups, which started their own struggle during the mass protests in Amman. They are the Jordanian mothers struggling for equality in citizenship law. Motherhood is an inspiration for their political activity, which challenges authoritarian government and exclusion politics. It allows women to enter public areas reserved for men and transform the political domain.
