Arab Women Writers

A Critical Reference Guide, 1873-1999

Edited by Radwa Ashour, Ferial Ghazoul, and Hasna Reda-Mekdashi

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

Arab women's writing in the modern age began with 'A'isha al-Taymuriya, Warda al-Yaziji, Zaynab Fawwaz, and other nineteenth-century pioneers in Egypt and the Levant. This unique study-first published in Arabic in 2004-looks at the work of those pioneers and then traces the development of Arab women's literature through the end of the twentieth century, and also includes a meticulously researched, comprehensive bibliography of writing by Arab women.
