Description: Journalist Mona Eltahawy appeared on the world stage following the 2011 Egyptian Revolution when she was assaulted by riot police. Her response - in the form of an article - ignited debate so controversial that Time magazine named her as one of its People of the Year. In this book, this award-winning commentator continues her fearless discussion on the repression of women's rights in the Middle East, bolstered by information about the socio-political and religious contexts and the catalysts of the Arab Spring.

Refreshing and authoritative, it is both a thought-provoking examination of female oppression and a passionate advocacy vehicle for change.
