A great read and stunning pictures. The Egyptian women in this book come from all walks of life, and offer a very interesting perspective of the revolution that swept Mubarak from power. In a society where women are often under represented in the political arena, it was refreshing to see the extent of their participation and their views on their role and their aspirations for a new society. A must for anybody interested in this chapter of the Arab Spring.

A friend recommended this book to me and I am impressed. We were talking about how women are better suited to change societal structures and lead revolutions. As social/communication technology evolves women get empowered - more than men - and this shifts the power balance. It is particularly interesting to see how this plays out in the Middle East where women have a late start in many ways.

The book format that provides an easy "read" with many striking photos. The captions are just enough to concisely express a main idea and the reader (viewer!) is then left to freely explore multiple dimensions of that idea by pausing and reflecting; peeling layers of meaning from each image. The richness of the book, its warmth and insight come from a deep expression provoked by the included images.

The interviews with several of the women involved in the Arab Spring events aggregates multiple viewpoints to provide a depth to understanding the situation in Egypt. Weaving images with the perspectives of on-the-ground activists provides a great anchor for the striking photos.

Tip: I got the book from Lulu.com for a few bucks less. Get it, read it and then take time to reflect on it!
