Review of The Hidden Face of Eve by Nawal El Saadawi at Reading Through Life
Carina who blogs at Reading Through Life is hosting her second Ramadan Reading project this year. Throughout the whole of Ramadan she is posting reviews of fiction and nonfiction books dealing with Islam and the Arab world. It’s a really great project that gives a look at a faith that isn’t often highlighted in the book blogging world. Although there are a lot of religious bloggers and faith projects, they are usually only focused on the Christian faiths. The series is a great way to learn more about Islam and about living as a Muslim in the West or in the Arab world.
Today I provided a guest review of Nawal El Saadawi’s The Hidden Face of Eve. I really enjoyed the book and wish that we had chosen this as our Year of Feminist Classics reading by Saadawi. The book really gave a lot of important context to her works of fiction, highlighting the importance of class issues when it comes to feminism and women’s rights – something with which I agree fully!
