The State and the Women's Movement in Tunisia: Mobilization, Institutionalization, and Inclusion
Despite Tunisia’s impressive indicators on female labor force participation, educational attainment, and political participation compared to other countries in the Middle East and North Africa region, Tunisian women lack full social inclusion and economic empowerment. Nonresident fellow Valentine M. Moghadam analyzes Tunisian women’s employment patterns and challenges and offers some policy recommendations. This short issue brief and longer research paper are part of a project on pluralism and inclusion in the Middle East after the Arab Spring. The project is generously supported by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
