Abstract

Whilst much has been written about women in the Middle East, there are several aspects that hitherto have not been explored by anthropologists and historians. This article provides a new perspective of the women’s culture in Saudi Arabia in the early decades of the last century using oral history and storytelling. Oral history can fill in the gaps in the written history of women and provide a new narrative that is written by women themselves. The main data method is in-depth interviews with eight women about their life stories and their mothers’. The results present an ethnographic portrait of the culture from several aspects such as roles and relationships. The study contributes to knowledge as it provides novel data about the women’s culture in Saudi Arabia (1900-1940) through the memories of women themselves, which has never been done previously.
