Week 2: ‘Woman at Point Zero’ (1975) by Nawal El Saadawi (Egypt ).
Imagine getting to hear the only first hand life account of an Islamic woman accused of murder, days before her execution. If that got your attention the way it did mine, read the book and prepare to be hooked! First published in Arabic, it is a classic work of feminist literature. Book rating📙 📙 📙 📙📙
