The Bint al-Nil Journal digital collection includes selected articles from the journal, which was an important record of civic engagement and philanthropy within the Egyptian feminist community.
Founded in 1948 by educator, journalist, and reformer Doria Shafik, the Bint al-Nil, or Daughter of the Nile, was a women's organization that campaigned for women's rights in Egypt. The group's publication, also titled Bint al-Nil, provides insight into humanitarian efforts in the Middle East.
This journal is part of PDL’s collaboration with the Women and Memory Library and Documentation Center, an affiliation of the Women and Memory Forum. Women and Memory Forum are the copyright holders of the Bint al-Nil Collection.
