“All the Women of Cairo Would Have Taken Part”: Huda Sha’arawi and Egyptian Women’s Participation in the 1919 Revolution

In Friday’s post, I discussed the role of women in the Egyptian Revolution of 1919. One of the most well-known of these women was Huda Sha’arawi, who is sometimes described as the founder of Egyptian feminism. Students can learn about Sha’arawi to understand the changing role of women around 1900, anticolonial resistance after the First World War, and how colonized peoples brought about decolonization.
