This book profiles gender activism in Egypt from the late Mubarak era to the present. Tadros is a research fellow at the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex. This book is based on research and study of women's and feminist movements in Egypt over the past 20 years. Tadros is closely connected to the research, having been involved in women's activism during part of the period under study. This book provides an in-depth study of women's movements in Egypt under former President Mubarak and his wife, Suzanne, and addresses the way the revolution of 2011 and the transitional period under Muhammad Morsi affected the trajectory of gender politics. Aside from some need of English editing, the book is likely the best empirical profile of women's political activism in Egypt in the contemporary era. It is detailed, readable, and well organized. It serves as a very welcome addition to feminist scholarship and post-revolutionary politics in Egypt. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. --Paul Rowe, Trinity Western University
