Summary
"In this powerful and timely book, Ayala Emmett examines the political roles of women in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Emmett's insights come from numerous trips to the region that included in-depth interviews with many of the participants in the peace process. Our Sisters' Promised Land provides excerpts from the interviews that give voice to the women who played vitally important yet often overlooked roles in the political transformations of the contemporary Middle East. Emmett's keen observations on women's actions in political venues have global implications, transcending the specific political and social contexts of the region and shedding light on both the strengths of female activism and the resistances of male political institutions." "Emmett investigates the successes and failures of women in the Israeli political landscape, particularly the harassment experienced during the leadership of Right and ultra-Right groups before the ascension to office of the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. Her account of women's activism in Israel provides a rich backdrop for viewing the compelling events that have taken place in the Middle East throughout the 1990s and offers insights into the future of women's political activism both in the ever-changing Israeli political climate and in the broader world of women in politics."--Jacket
