American Abroad Media

Listen to the Interview

The revolutions that swept across the Middle East in 2011, known as “The Arab Spring,” promised greater freedoms for many in the region, including women. While there have been some advances in women’s rights, the promise in many cases has not been realized.

In the February 20114 America Abroad show, “Women’s Rights after the Arab Spring”, we travel to Egypt, Tunisia, Turkey and the Gulf States to assess how and where women’s rights have progressed.

Experts include Mahnaz Afkhami, Melanne Verveer, Executive Director of the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security at Georgetown University, Isobel Coleman, Senior Fellow and Director of the Women and Foreign Policy Program at the Council of Foreign Relations, and Turki al-Dakhil, Saudi media personality and host of Eda’at (Spotlight), a show covering political, cultural and human-interest stories on the regional TV network Al-Arabiya.
