A Daughter of Isis: The Autobiography of Nawal El Saadawi
Nawal El Saadawi

Nawal el Saadawi has been pilloried, censored, imprisoned and exiled for her refusal to accept the oppressions imposed on women by sex and class. For her, writing and action have been inseparable and this is reflected in some of the most evocative and disturbing novels ever written by or about Arab women. Born in a small Egyptian village in 1931, Nawal el Saadawi went on to train as a medical doctor. With the publication of Women and Sex in 1969 and other activist writings she has courted danger ever since. She is a writer who has used words as an act of rebellion against injustice.
