Révolution tunisienne et empowerment

Download PDF

Tunisian women have carried out their revolution. Beyond this indisputable fact, a fundamental question does not tire of asking: what if the action of these women were a complete waste of effort? And if what has emerged as a formidable uprising against the subordination and patriarchy was actually a punctual start that the situation after the revolution was quick to temper? The present work aims to analyze the validity of this assumption, not through a trajectory that can be generalized to all women of Tunisia, but a triple path (rural women, women in the country and disadvantaged suburbs, women in civil society and politicians) to allow us to prepare an update of the status of women in this country.
