“More than any other woman, El Saadawi has come to embody the trials of Arab feminism.”—San Francisco Chronicle

This is a collection that brings together the two plays that led to Nawal El Saadawi being charged with “insulting Islam” in Egypt.

Both works develop key themes of El Saadawi’s work: that religions are inimical to women and the poor, that the oppression of women is reprehensible and not solely characteristic of the Middle East or the Third World, and that free speech is fundamental to any society.

Nawal El Saadawi is a distinguished visiting professor at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.
