Mobile technology and women’s empowerment in post-revolution Egypt
MetadataShow full item record
This study examines how young Egyptian women are accessing and utilising mobile technology to contribute to their socio-economic empowerment. Toward that end, this project employed qualitative interviews to discover women’s lived experience with mobile phones and report their narratives around its impact on their individual development, regarding equity, autonomy and socio-economic transformation. The data shows mobile phones as normalised within their life-worlds characterised by a consistent telecopresence, and a critical cultural analysis reveals its potential to both facilitate and frustrate empowerment for young women in an emerging Arab nation.
