520    "For more than a decade, Katherine Zoepf has lived in or 
       traveled throughout the Arab world, reporting on the lives
       of women, whose role in the region has never been more in 
       flux. Only a generation ago, female adolescence as we know
       it in the West did not exist in the Middle East. There 
       were only children and married women. Today, young Arab 
       women outnumber men in universities, and a few are 
       beginning to face down religious and social tradition in 
       order to live independently, to delay marriage, and to 
       pursue professional goals. Hundreds of thousands of devout
       girls and women are attending Qur'anic schools--and using 
       the training to argue for greater rights and freedoms from
       an Islamic perspective. And, in 2011, young women helped 
       to lead antigovernment protests in the Arab Spring. But 
       their voices have not been heard. Their stories have not 
       been told.  In Syria before its civil warshe documents a 
       complex society in the midst of soul searching about its 
       place in the world and about the role of women. In Lebanon,
       she documents a country that on the surface is freer than 
       other Arab nations but whose women must balance extreme 
       standards of self-presentation with Islamic codes of 
       virtue. In Abu Dhabi, Zoepf reports on a generation of 
       Arab women who've found freedom in work outside the home. 
       In Saudi Arabia she chronicles driving protests and women 
       entering the retail industry for the first time. In the 
       aftermath of Tahrir Square, she examines the crucial role 
       of women in Egypt's popular uprising.  Deeply informed, 
       heartfelt, and urgent, Good Daughters brings us a new 
       understanding of the changing Arab societies--from 9/11 to
       Tahrir Square to the rise of ISIS--and gives voice to the 
       remarkable women at the forefront of this change"--
