Learn how the seclusion of women can be used as a feminist defense against exploitation--and as an empowering forceInternationally acclaimed author Ann Chamberlin's book, A History of Women's Seclusion in the Middle East: The Veil in the Looking Glass is a critical interdisciplinary examination of the practice of seclusion of women throughout the Middle East from its beginnings. This challenging exploration discusses the reasons that seclusion may not be as oppressive as is presently generally accepted, and, in fact, may be an empowering force for women in both the West and East. Readers are taken on a controversial, belief-bending journey deep into the surprising origins and diverse aspects of female seclusion to find solid evidence of its surprising use as a defense against monolithic cultural exploitation.

The twentieth century saw female roles change more rapidly than during any other period of history. In 1900 women were domestic creatures: wives, mothers, workers and ornaments. Some had long sought new rights and freedoms. In the course of a turbulent century - which included two World Wars and an explosion in technology and communications - women gained a vote and a voice, and by 2000 had permeated every male bastion from the professional workplace to the corridors of power. This illustrated survey charts that incredible journey in the UK. Women from all walks of life are featured in anecdotes from a wealth of sources including the National Archives.
