Cover of J. Edward: Sudanese Women Refugees (PDF)

(4.8 / 5.0 – 3 customer ratings)
This book examines the social, cultural, economic, and political transformations that have occurred among southern Sudanese women refugees as they experience life in Cairo, Egypt. It intends to show how these women use their newly acquired skills and knowledge to challenge their past and to challenge the image of women refugees as victims and dependents. The author counters previous literature’s tendency to categorize these women as victimized, dependent and backwards, rather than recognizing their strength and contributions to their new societies.
