Product Description

This edited volume focuses on the writings of Nawal El Saadawi, generally acclaimed as ‘the Arab world’s leading feminist and iconoclast’. Saadawi’s concerns and advocacy for the struggles of women of the Arab world have progressively blossomed into a concern for the struggles of women all over the globe—the underprivileged, the subaltern, the disenfranchised, and all women suffering  from the burdens of oppression, patriarchy, injustice, and dehumanization—attributable to feudalistic,  religious, political, cultural, or economic systems. She aptly describes herself as a ‘socialist feminist.’

 

The volume is intended to serve as a handbook for teachers who teach courses on Nawal El Saadawi’s works of literature as well as women’s and gender studies. It will also be useful as a guide for both scholarly and general readers of Nawal El Saadawi’s works for a better understanding of setting, content, style and narrative techniques in addition to Nawal El Saadawi’s vision of feminism and her activist mission towards its articulation and implementation.
