I am a PhD candidate in Human rights studies since the fall 2012. My dissertation project is concerned with feminist movements and activism in Egypt after the revolution in 2011. I draw from several empirical examples with focus on how feminists engaged with the constitution writing process in 2011-13 as well as how feminists navigate the shrinking and more controlled public space since June 2013. Theoretically, I use feminist legal theory, social movement theory and postcolonial feminism mainly concerning the concepts of equality, human rights and politics.
