The emerging literature on the socalled Arab Spring has largely focused on the evolution of the uprisings in cities and power centers, as well as the reaction of elites or foreign powers, neglecting events in decentralized contexts and among marginalized groups. This replicates a long-standing trend in the literature which has been powerfully highlighted by Asef Bayat’s research on social non-movements. In order to reach a more diversified and inner understanding of these issues, the article examines the specific case of women in Egypt’s rural areas, shedding light on their conditions and assessing if and how they have reacted and contributed to the dynamics currently unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.
