She has also completed a series of papers based on her fieldwork, which analyze women’s movements in the region and the trajectory for social transformation and future activism. Her paper “Arab Women Revolutionaries: A Comparative Case Study of the Role of Women’s Movements in the Moroccan and Tunisian ‘Arab Springs’” was recently awarded Best Paper at the Global Temple Conference, and “Gender Inequality and Social Mobilization in North Africa” is forthcoming in the Georgetown Journal of Middle East Studies.
