Amy Young Evrard

I am a cultural anthropologist interested in women's rights, human rights, gender, social movements, transnationalism, Islam, and the Middle East/North Africa region. My current writing is on the women's rights movement in Morocco and how activists attempt to localize transnational feminist ideas such as "equality" and "women's human rights" in ways that make them more relevant and meaningful to Moroccan society. In 2011, I am continuing my interests in human rights, law, and political status by beginning a new research project on Christian communities in Syria.
