Abstract

The Arab Women’s Solidarity Association United (AWSA United) is a pluralistic, transnational, and scholastic women’s advocacy group that emerged in cyberspace in 1999. Arab women in the diaspora sought cyberspace as a safe space to connect with one another in their activism for women’s rights in the Arab world. Using an online survey and analysis of printed and electronic documents, this case study investigates Arab women’s cyberfeminism. It explores how activists utilized AWSA United to foster collective identity, strengthen solidarity, and enrich activism.
