Fifty Million Rising

Fifty Million Rising

The New Generation of Working Women Revolutionizing the Muslim World

Across the Muslim world, a quiet but powerful tsunami is transforming culture and the economy: Muslim women are going to work. In the span of just over a decade, more than fifty million women have joined the workforce, which has given them more earning and purchasing power and greater autonomy.In Fifty Million Rising, award-winning economist Saadia Zahidi documents this revolution through the stories of the remarkable women who are at the forefront of this shift-from McDonalds workers in Pakistan and tech-startup founders in Indonesia, to caterers in Egypt and executives in Saudi corporations.
