Women's Rights in Post-Revolutionary Tunisia

I am Manel, a second year PhD candidate at CWS. I did my MA on English Literature at the University of Sousse, Tunisia. My MA dissertation was about the representation of female figures in Victorian Literature, particularly Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. As I have been interested in feminism, the post-revolutionary Tunisian debates over feminism, and the remarkable contribution of Facebook to these debates, I decided to conduct a PhD research at CWS (CWS staff have been very welcoming and helpful since the beginning). My research aims at offering a critical feminist study of the post-revolutionary Islamist discourse in Facebook in regard to feminist activism in Tunisia, particularly political activism.
