Sinopsis: Writer, doctor and militant, Nawal el Saadawi has had a major influence on the lives of women and men globally. Author of many books, both fiction and non-fiction, which challenge our thinking about the politics of sex, Third World development, the Arab world and writing itself, she has been a constant thorn in the side of the class and patriarchal systems.
This collection of her non-fiction writing since the publication of her seminal book on Arab women The Hidden Face of Eve (Zed Books, 1980) presents the full range of her extraordinary work. She explores a host of topics from women’s oppression at the hands of recent interpretations of Islam to the role of women in African literature, from the sexual politics of development initiatives to tourism in a ‘post-colonial’age, from the nature of cultural identity to the subversive potential of creativity, from the fight against female genital mutilation to problems facing the internationalization of the women’s movement. Throughout her writing, she sheds new light on the power of women in resistance - against poverty, racism, fundamentalism, and inequality of all kinds.
Showing the intellectual and political development of an important thinker for the late twentieth century, this book is essential reading for students and lecturers in women’s studies, development studies and social theory. It is also a book anyone who wants to understand current global politics - in their widest sense - can not do without.
About the Author: Nawal El Saadawi is a renowned Egyptian writer, novelist, and activist. She has published more than forty books, which have been translated into more than thirty languages.
