Invisible Women of the Middle East
Sana Afouaiz has travelled across the Middle East and North Africa, meeting with women and listening to their stories. Delving inside their diverse realities and cultural complexities, her journey gives voice to the silent, the suffering, the brave, the resistant and the oppressed.
Sorrowful, yet at times uplifting, this book provides a courageous look at life beneath the veil of mystery that shrouds this region, a land where the truth casts light into even the darkest of spaces.
With themes of honour, virginity, sex, hijab, prostitution, religion, freedom and oppression, “Invisible Women of the Middle East” calls to urgently examine the beliefs and ideas upon which gender realities are constructed in this region.
