Choice and fundamentalism; Women under fundamentalist regimes

23.12.2016 / Created by NJ

Fundamentalism concerns society in general but women are doubly concerned: they are directly targeted by the ideologies propagated by the fundamentalists; and they are affected by the consequences of a return to conservatism (more or less strict veil, limitations of mobility, early marriages, arranged marriages, etc.) and all the difficulties of integration that may result. Emigrants who leave in particular to Syria have a framework and a precise destiny defined by fundamentalist organizations, most of which are also called terrorists - Reactions of Belgian circles and women who go as far as ostracism. This text examines how women are treated under the fundamentalist regimes, those who engage, those who accept and those who revolt, and finally those who, after accepting, go back and want to get out and reintegrate into society from which they are coming.
