Women suffer from low participation in the economy worldwide, and they suffer the most in the MENA countries. As such the uprising erupted in many MENA countries, in order to improve the economic situation of the marginalized groups including women. The research argues that the Arab spring resulted in negative effects regarding the economic rights of women including the continuation of lack of education, lack of women participation in labour force, and low level of health. To answer the research questions the analysis uses mixed methodology including quantitative datasets based on UN and INGOs reports and qualitative research based on ethnographic approach with semi-structured interviews.
