To Fail, To Fall

A schematic reflection on the different ways in which the struggle of prominent feminist and proto-feminist public figures have been orientated in relation to the nationalist agenda circa the Egyptian revolution of 1952. This essay situates itself in the wake of the Arab Spring and the subsequent instability and violence in the Middle East, and as a document which reflects both its topic and its discourse in relation to a ‘Westernised Arabic subjectivity’.
