Historically invisible, women from the Arab world have recently been writing themselves into visibility and they are becoming agents of possible transformations in their society. Their voices had not been heard traditionally, but the fact that they are inhabiting the space of diaspora as a result of migration helped them become effective agents of border crossing and gave them the tools necessary to shape new identities and sound themselves out at both national and international levels. Arab-American women intellectuals have found a medium through their narratives to address pressing issues in the current age of socio-political turmoil.

Impressive technological, scientific and cultural achievements seem to have been accompanied by a deep erosion of the sense of meaning and the possibility of meaning. Along with economic well-being, enormous existential difficulties are revealed which are expressed in the demand for meaning. Along with the empowerment of and rights to the individual, there is an ongoing breakdown of communal life leading to loneliness and a crisis of meaning that has political and social implications.
