During the Arab uprisings, an unprecedented number of women went on the streets, opening the way for a more important role in politics. However, in the following transition period they must fight against their exclusion from the political scene. This brief focuses on the new forms of political participation of Arab women, different from the western models, as well as the factors that influence this level of participation: women' s contribution to the established democratic culture, the nature and role of political Islam,and the portrayal of women in the new media.
