Kuwaiti Women in Pre-Oil Kuwait as Seen by the American Missionaries

Auther : Zubaydah Ashkanani

This paper is based on the Writings the American missionaries in Kuwait. The mission was established in Kuwait in 1911 and stayed there for more than half a century, providing health services through “The American Hospital”.

This study examines the position of Kuwaiti women as reflected in the writings of the missionaries, especially of the women, whose writings are unique in their ethnographic data on Kuwaiti women in pre-oil Kuwaiti society. Al-though the main focus is on women’s position, several socio-economic aspects of Kuwaiti society are illustrated.
