Oil and Women


… the persistence of patriarchy in the Middle East has relatively little to do with Islam, but much to do with the region’s oil-based economy. Economic growth that is based on export-oriented manufacturing and agriculture tends to benefit women; economic growth based on oil exports diminishes their role in the work force and the political sphere, and hence allows patriarchal norms, laws, and institutions to endure.”
