Blurb/Shorttext:
what makes Yemeni women in particular and Arab women in general restricted in their walks is not just the patriarchal society alone, but also their participation in creating stereotypes about themselves. They should dare break chains they create against them by fearing the reaction of the society and try develop a new idea about their potentials. They can prove their abilities by a matter of deeds and not just wishes. However. They have to be very flexible when dealing with sensitive issues like veil or even mobility by a matter of normalization; they should have respect of what the society looks at as holy. This work shows the way how a woman in Yemen can adopt modernity while still being seen as conservative by her society. It offers real examples that managed to overcome the cultural handicaps with a new hybrid but still accepted identity that combines between conservatism and modernity in an accepted way.
