State repression, under authoritarianism, is so frequently taken for granted that its deeper ramifications are rarely studied. The Arab region has witnessed a rising interest in women's issues at both the state and the regional levels. Arab thought has developed in response to authoritarianism. The nationalist military coups of the 1950s and 1960s divided the Arab world into nationalist progressive republics (such as Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and Algeria) and nationalist conservative monarchies (such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, and Morocco). In addition with the disintegration of the nationalist project in the late 1970s, a single political model rose to dominance in the Arab world, namely, the authoritarian neoliberal model. This regional development was reinforced by sea changes on the global level.

Keywords:   authoritarianism, state repression, nationalist progressive republics, nationalist conservative monarchies, authoritarian neoliberal model, Arab world, film
