"Tadros offers detailed and fascinating case studies of some major campaigns launched during the later Mubarak era, when activists worked under the dual challenge of an authoritarian regime and widespread popular hostility to women’s rights."—Women’s Review of Books

"The best empirical profile of women’s political activism in Egypt in the contemporary era. It is detailed, readable, and well organized. It serves as a very welcome addition to feminist scholarship and post-revolutionary politics in Egypt."—Choice

"Drawing on over two decades of activist engagement with struggles for gender justice in Egypt, this volume is rich in case studies, new findings and valuable lessons about the multiple entanglements of mobilization for gender equality with contestations over political power, governance and authority."—Deniz Kandiyoti, emeritus professor of development studies, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

"Tadros’s study of the Egyptian women’s movement following 2011 explains its ‘red lines’ while providing rich and nuanced empirical analysis of the women’s movement’s organizational, ideological, and legal challenges."—Diane Singerman, editor of Cairo Contested: Governance, Urban Space, and Global Modernity

"An important contribution to the literature on women’ s movements in the Arab world as well as to theoretical debates about transitions to democracy and collective action."—Hoda Elsadda, author of Gender, Nation, and the Arabic Novel: Egypt, 1892–2008
