In a recent Carnegie Endowment paper, Omayma Abdel-Latif investigates the role and status of women in Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. She concludes that the Brotherhood leadership continues to subordinate its women members despite their recent assertiveness following the release of the 2007 draft party platform. However, she sees signs of a generational shift within the movement, and a greater receptiveness to inclusion among the group’s younger members. You can read the full paper here.
