Personal Freedom beyond Politics and Human Rights: Women, Religion and Freedom in the Arab World

Maysar Sarieddine


This article explores the issue of what constitutes freedom for women living in the Arab world. Central to the
concerns addressed in this article is the issue of religion as a cultural force that defines the perceived limits of
freedom. Ultimately, the issue addressed in the paper will be how best to understand the ways Arab women perceive
their freedom and constraints without attempting to speak for them, or imposing a Western definition of freedom on
their situation. In order to do this, a theoretical framework provided by dialogical liberation theory and depth
psychology will be recommended.
