The Escalation of Gender-Based Violence Against Women and Girls in the Mena Region

The post-Arab Spring turmoil is affecting men, women, and children, but specific types of pernicious violence systematically target women and girls. The post-Arab Spring initial backlash on women’s rights is developing into unprecedented new types of violence against women with the dangerously mounting tide of Jihadists. The central aim of the book is to document and unveil the new types of violence that women are subject to across the MENA region, understand their social, economic and political ramifications, and propose strategies to gradually stop them.
