CHW: Women in Egypt

Today, we will examine the roles women played in Egyptian life. Before we begin, however, I’d like you to consider the following (especially in the context of the upcoming tutorial):

  1. If we dedicate a day to studying the role of women in a culture, are we actually reinforcing a cultural bias towards men? (Think about what we are studying the rest of the time)
  2. How do the  recent stories about Rehtaeh Parsons and the Frosh Week Rape Chant  reflect views of women in Canada?

I’d like you to evaluate the role of women in Egypt by using SPEAR.  Create a quick chart, leaving sufficient space for 3-4 points under each heading. Remember that SPEAR stands for:

Society

Politics

Economics

Arms

Religion
