This article aims to draw on the empowerment perspective as a key sociological concept to define our understanding of Arab women's transitions from the traditionally prescribed private sphere of the family to the emerging public sphere of the community. Female empowerment is viewed here as a multi-dimensional and multifaceted process of power re-distribution in society, and therefore its realization is conceived as a function of the interplay of progressive gender-based societal and legal advocacy actions, as well as institutional reforms. The proposed framework suggests that female empowerment in psychological, social, cultural, political, legal, economic and institutional contexts would generate wide-ranging outcomes with significant social and moral implications that go beyond media workplace boundaries.
