Headscarves and Hymens "Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution" - Mona Eltahawy


Headscarves and Hymens explodes the myth that we should stand back and watch while women are disempowered and abused in the name of religion.In this laceratingly honest account, Eltahawy takes aim both at attitudes in the Middle East and at the western liberals who mistake misogyny for cultural difference. Her argument is clear: unless political revolution in the Arab world is accompanied by social and sexual revolution, no progress will be made.


Headscarves and Hymens is the book the world has been crying out for: a powerful, fearless account of what it really means to be a woman in the Muslim world.
