Abstract:The ‘Arab Spring’ has drawn massive attention to the Middle East, North Africa and the Arab peninsula since its beginning in 2011. Hopes were high, international newspapers and TV-stations alike were drawn into the euphoria of freedom that seemed to sweep over the whole region. However the mood has changed since then. Women and women’s organisations were at the centre of the attention since the beginning of the reporting of the uprisings, they were seen as a catalyst of change in the region. But how much of this tale is reality? Women’s organisations in Tunisia surely received much more media attention than before 2011. Nevertheless the legal situation of women in the country didn’t change drastically. The central question of this Bachelor Thesis will be how women’s organisations in Tunisia were portrayed by Tunisian print media (available online) before the parliamentary elections in 2014. Did one women’s organization reach a hegemonial position and is it able to act as a spokesperson for the rights and needs of Tunisian women?
