Modernizing women : gender and social change in the Middle East by Valentine M Moghadam ( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 1,100 libraries worldwide
"Moghadam's influential study of gender dynamics and social processes in the Middle East has been fully updated to reflect a decade of major changes - including shifts in development strategy and population policy, the rise of a reform movement in Iran incorporating both Islamic and secular feminists, the fundamentalist war on feminists in Algeria, and the rise and fall of the Taliban in Afghanistan. New data and analysis of emerging trends make this second edition a welcome successor."--BOOK JACKET.

Globalization and social movements : Islamism, feminism, and the global justice movement by Valentine M Moghadam ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 487 libraries worldwide
"Deftly combining nuanced theory with rich empirical examples, leading scholar Valentine M. Moghadam shows how both physical and electronic mobility has helped to create dynamic global social movements. Exploring the historical roots of Islamism, feminism, and global justice, the book also shows how these movements have been stimulated by relatively recent globalization processes, including neoliberalism, war, and hegemonic masculinities. Moghadam examines similarities and differences among the three movements, along with internal differentiation within each. Her argument is informed by feminism, world-systems, world polity, and social movement theories in a seamlessly integrated framework that will be essential reading for all students of globalization."--Jacket.
Identity politics and women : cultural reassertions and feminisms in international perspective ( Book )
8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 483 libraries worldwide
The premise that identity politics concern with gender, religion, race and nation has replaced the issue of class as the central focus of politics around the world is the starting point for this collection of essays. It is of particular interest because many of the 13 case studies of gender politics are of Muslim or South Asian countries, where the feminist agenda often clashes head-on with the local religious or nationalist agenda and where the reassertion of cultural identities against the West often comes at the expense of women. This book is valuable for describing these clashes in detail; it would have been much better, however, had it acknowledged more forthrightly the internal contradiction between feminism and opposition to the imperialism of universal Western values. from Foreign Affairs (May/ June 1994).

The chapters in this book were written for a UNU/WIDER research conference convened to explore two parallel phenomena: the changing position of women and gender relations and the relevance of the concept of patriarchy, and the impact of development - and especially industrialization and wage work - on women and gender. They address these questions through theoretical, historical, and empirical approaches, and provide critical analysis and macro- and micro-level data for East Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian subcontinent, the Nordic region, and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.

Women, work, and ideology in post-revolutionary Iran by Valentine M Moghadam ( Book )
2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
The paper is a quantitative and qualitative analysis of Islamic ideology and female employment in Iran today. The Islamic regime's ideology regarding women's roles (as well as the inconsistencies within it) are examined and contrasted with women's employment patterns. Also, today's employment patterns are compared with those before the Revolution. The paper shows that much of the initial rhetoric discouraging female employment and attempting to impose an ideology of domesticity has not been successful. Although labor participation rates have declined for women, they have declined even more for men. The female share of the urban labor force has not altered, however, and government employment for women is actually higher today than it was before the Revolution. The paper identifies a discrepancy between ideological prescriptions and economic imperatives.
