Au printemps 2012, Djemila Benhabib a vécu au rythme du Caire et de Tunis. Avec la curiosité et la passion qu'on lui connaît, elle s'est imprégnée du quotidien et des préoccupations des habitants des deux capitales pour mieux dépeindre l'histoire en marche, celle de deux grands pays que de courageuses insurrections populaires ont débarrassés de leurs dictateurs. Au coeur du combat pour l'avènement de véritables démocraties dans le monde arabe et musulman, deux batailles décisives sont en cours : l'une pour la liberté des femmes, et l'autre, pour la séparation des pouvoirs politique et religieux. En Tunisie comme en Égypte, les victoires électorales de l'islamisme politique mettent en effet en grave péril des acquis laïques et progressistes obtenus de haute lutte par le passé. D'où viendra la lumière ? Djemila Benhabib est convaincue, avec d'autres, que ce sont les femmes qui achèveront les révolutions du printemps arabe. Voici un livre sensible et lucide qui nous fait découvrir les aspirations de millions de femmes et d'hommes qui ne souhaitent rien d'autre que l'égalité et la justice.
