Fannie Lou Hamer. Sources d’inspiration. Nana Asma’u. [Chapter 1, pp.1-2] Nana Asma’u and the Scholarly Tradition ONE This book focuses on a nineteenth-century Muslim woman in West Africa who was a legend in her own time.

Nana Asma’u

Nana Asma’u (1793-1864) was a respected public figure of significant authority. She was active in politics, education, and social reform; she was a prolific author, popular teacher, and renowned scholar and intellectual. Asma’u did not accomplish her work in isolation; she was actively involved with her family and the wider community of which it was a part. Asma’u was a pearl on a string of women’s scholarship that extended throughout the Muslim world. This book has two aims. [Chapter 6, pp.76-91] Caliphate Women’s Participation in the Community SIX A certain number of women in the Caliphate community, like their descendants in contemporary Sokoto and nearby towns, were teachers and writers.

Huda Shaarawi. Qiú Jǐn. Qiu Jin (1875–1907) was a Chinese writer & poet, a strong-willed feminist who is considered a national hero in China.

Qiú Jǐn

Also called “Jianhu Nüxia” (Woman Knight of Mirror Lake”), she was executed after participating in a failed uprising against the Qing Dynasty. Qiu Jin was born in 1875 to a family of the gentry, and received an excellent education as was typical for a young woman of her position. She always loved to write, and in this period of her life she wrote many joyful poems on subjects ranging from flowers and the four seasons to visiting historical places and domestic activities. She also wrote about female heroes and warriors from Chinese history, in inspiring poems about their strength, courage, and beauty. One of her poems begins “Don’t tell me women / are not the stuff of heroes”.

When Qiu Jin was 19, she obeyed her father and married the son of a wealthy merchant, against her own wishes. Boxer Soldiers, courtesy Wikimedia Commons.

Le 2 juin 2015, la préfecture de Paris prenait la décision d’évacuer le camp de migrants situé sous la station du métro aérien La Chapelle.

Migrantes en France

Près de soixante-dix d’entre eux étaient alors logés brièvement dans des hôtels "Formule 1" de la grande banlieue de la capitale, avant d’être dirigés vers des foyers. Aujourd’hui, seules les femmes célibataires sans enfants sont encore logées dans un Formule 1. Où elles attendent que les dirigeants européens veuillent bien se mettre d'accord sur une politique d'accueil... Dernière semaine de juillet. Pendant que d’autres femmes profitent d’une journée dans un parc d’attraction organisée par le Secours populaire, Louam* décide de rester à l’hôtel. Louam est enceinte de trois mois. Elle hésite, puis sort un petit objet métallique de sous son oreiller, une tige qui se termine en spirale, « je m’en sers pour effacer mes empreintes, on a toutes rendez-vous dans quelques jours pour les donner et je ne veux pas être renvoyée en Italie… ».
