Women’s sport participation in the United Arab Emirates: a case study
thesisposted on 2018-07-12, 00:00 authored by Niloofar Margarite Rouhani
This study identified and analysed contemporary social (religion, class and culture) conditions that facilitate, and/or restrict, Emirati women’s sports participation in the public sphere in the United Arab Emirates. Drawing on a feminist poststructural framework, the study sought to analyze the discursive enactment of (disruptive) gender identity positions.
