Description: Between 1892 and 1920 nearly thirty Arabic periodicals by, for, and about women were produced in Egypt for circulation throughout the Arab world. In this book, Beth Baron presents the first sustained study of this remarkable material, setting it in the context of the dramatic social transformation of the era.

"Baron's work celebrates the creativity of women writers and succeeds impressively in recovering their voices. Her diligence in reading hitherto unknown journals and bringing to light obscure writers offers a new, feminine vantage point on the rising Egyptian middle class, and for this achievement she deserves full praise.... (An) engagingly written work". -- Robert L. Tignor, New York Times Book Review

"Beth Baron's fine and elegant study of the Arabic women's press traces the elaboration of a new female literary culture in Egypt.... By recovering the texts, voices, and lives of these pioneers of the women's press, she has conferred historical agency upon them". -- Julia Clancy-Smith, Journal of the American Research Center in Egypt
