This article focuses on the book "Women and Media in the Middle East: Power Through Self-Expression," edited by Naomi Sakr. Proliferating satellite channels have increased women's visibility in the region but visibility does not necessarily confer power. This book explores various ways in which the media has been used to open up possibilities for women in the Middle East or, conversely, to restrict them. It looks back at women's journalism in pre-1952 Egypt and forward to future trends in women's Internet use.
