In the 11 March 2017 episode of the history programme Fach’hadou on Chaine 3 (link below courtesy of www.radioalgerie.dz), Natalya Vince explores the participation of women in Algerian society after independence in 1962. She discusses the drivers of the early successes included a level of participation of women in Algerian politics ahead of its time. A backlash followed their efforts at mobilisation in the 1960s and despite educational advances, marginalisation set in during the 1970s and 1980s.
