In my research I will examine the political and economic facilities of the Middle East and the social opportunities and protective security of women in Muslim countries. I will address what economic facilities scholars argue may inhibit the Middle East from modernizing, such as the communal culture and certain institutions in Islam such as the waqf and zafat. I will then address the political and social opportunities scholars believe women in Muslim countries are offered—if women are able to be politicians/have a strong leadership role in their communities and the availability of education to women.
