Kira Dreher - Arab Women in Arab News
Arab Women in Arab News
When Arab women are portrayed in western media, they are typically veiled and voiceless, their words spoken for them in captions and voice-overs. But where do Arab women stand in current Arab news? Are the western stereotypes reinforced or countered? For the first time, this book provides systematic answers to these and other questions. Using empirical, text-mining and close reading techniques, it sheds light on a range of concepts through which Arab women can be canvassed, all couched in a lively and accessible exchange between leading experts on gender and human rights.
