Проблемы гендерного неравенства на Арабском Востоке

Азия и Африка сегодня. 2017. № 9 (722). С. 61-67.

The article summarizes the most popular theoretical approaches to systematic gender inequality in Islamic societies, and particularly in the Arab countries. Gender inequity in the region is a matter of international concern in Academia and among politicians, though it is still understudied due to the lack of reliable empirical data. Scholars study the problem of female oppression in predominantly Islamic societies from cultural and religious, historical, economic and institutional, and critically feminist standpoints. However, the discourse that could unite those approaches is yet young, which leads to obvious lacunae in academic knowledge.
