(p.161) Seven Conclusion
Gendered Paradoxes

Fida J. Adely

University of Chicago Press

This book concludes by presenting the many factors that limit and shape young women in Bawadi al-Naseem, Jordan—in particular, geography, economics, culture, and politics. Like many people in any other locale, however, they are not completely determined by these structures. Young women also actively engage in the making of their future possibilities—by getting good grades, by attracting the attention of young men who may marry them, by resisting the entreaties of potential suitors because they prefer to study, by teaching others about Islam, or by singing at musical performances on the king’s birthday. Young women do not act independently of their families’ counsel, but they are also not necessarily in conflict with them. They are products of the same environment and as such share many of the same beliefs and ideals.

Keywords:   young women, Bawadi al-Naseem, Jordan, geography, families
