Muslim Arab women touted for years as passive, submissive and fatalistic by the westerners. However, thanks to the Arab awakening against the oppressive regimes in the Middle East and Nord African countries this perception has quite changed. During the Arab Spring women were an integral partner in the struggle, demanding political changes and democracy to achieve democracy, justice, and political rights. They have become the most important actress of the political struggle but what impact did the Arab Spring has on women’s rights? What are the policies of the new Islamic administrations on the women’s rights? Is Islam a barrier for this? This paper aims to study Islam and women’s rights, women’s struggle for their political and civil rights and the change of their image with the Arab Spring.
