Donna Zajonc

Igniting a Spark of Power

As part of a government sponsored, nonprofit initiative, author and political consultant Donna Zajonc traveled to Tunis to meet with sixty prominent Islamic women from Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. Donna’s intimate account of her experience is a part hopeful, part cautionary tale of modern Muslim women emerging from the overt oppression imposed by governments, only to find themselves bound by a more pervasive, unspoken culture of limitation they called “the mindset.” This interview provides a fascinating glimpse into the politics of women’s liberation and the deeply ingrained resistance to it that applies as much to the industrialized West as it does to the traditional East.
