Democratic Women of Monterey Luncheon
May 16 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm$35 – $45
Women and Islam in the Middle East
Dr. Anne Marie Baylouny will share her insights on women in the Middle East, especially the impact of political Islam and activists on the well being of women. Tickets are $35 for DWMC members and $45 for non-members. The public is welcome to attend.
Dr. Baylouny is associate professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval Postgraduate School, specializing in Middle East politics, refugees, and grassroots organizing. She received her Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley. Her book, Privatizing Welfare in the Middle East: Kin Mutual Aid Associations in Jordan and Lebanon (Indiana University Press, 2010), analyzes new civil society welfare institutions created from economic reform policies, which solidify new and old identities.
She traveled and lived extensively in the Arab East, living in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan. She has been doing fieldwork on the Syrian refugees for the last few years. Her recent publications include women’s role in Hizbollah, financial incentives in the Syrian civil war and the effect of the Syrian refugees on water resources in Jordan and Lebanon.
