About this book

Written by Egypt's leading feminist writer, this book reveals the underlying hypocrisy of a male-dominated religious state, and raises awareness of the insufferable predicament of women in a society.

Reader's Thoughts

مملة ومبهمة.. اظن أنها كُتبت لغرض واحد: إهداراً للوقت!لن أُكملها.

من أغرب ما قرأت.. برغم ما فيها من أفكار تشبهني.. عندما كنت طفلة ذات السبع سنوات كنت أتخيل الصراع بين الخير و الشر هو الصراع بين الله و الشيطان و قدرة إنتصار كل منهم على الآخر في معارك تكمن فقط في نفسي و كنت أسمع تلك الصراعات على شكل "هاتف" يأمرني بفعل أشياء عديدة لا تخلو من روح المغامرة. و كنت أتخيل صوت الله في صوت أمي.. و كنت أخاف أمي كأني أخاف الله. أعجبت بتلك الرواية إلى حد ما.. برغم أنها أرهقتني نفسيا.. فهي تشبه تلك الكوابيس التي أعاني منها إلى حد كبير.

I am struggling so much right now. While I tried my best to love this novel, I don't think I did. I struggled with the rating of three starts because I WANT it deserves more but I don't think it deserves a higher rating. This novel is very experimental in the way it's written to the point where it confuses the reader. It constantly shifts between third and first person perspectives of different characters in a span of one paragraph and I could never keep track of who is talking. Some of the stories being told were never completed or she would come back to them chapters later only to find that I have forgotten who these people are. However, that being said, I do believe this novel has a lot of great thought put behind it; there would be times where I would be ululating in joy because of how the novel accurately describes the dangerous mixture between patriarchy and religion. Nawal provides great insight about how patriarchal men have used religion to disempower and control women, children, and even other men. I will definitely not give up on Nawal El Saadawi because I do believe she is a power to be reckoned with so I will definitely be reading her other novels hoping that they are not as experimental or perhaps even as badly written as this one.

I read Finnish copy right after after reading The Hidden Face of Eve. El Saadawi has been one of the biggest influencer shaping my feminism.


aku bingung baca buku ini..alur nya melompat-lompat, tokoh yang berubah-ubah. terlalu banyak kata-kata yang bersayap yang membuat cerita jalan cerita jadi sulit di mengerti. evenly I get the point of this book...but I can't enjoyed it :(

This book is about a strugle of a woman ( Zakiyah) againsts a tyrant (Umdah) and a bad system to get her self esteem and existence.

I really need to read it more than 2 times to get the essence of the story. Maybe because of the limitation of my imagination, or expectation, or just me being too eager to understand :p Finally found it beautifully written after read the English version. Bahasa translation sucks, sadly have to admit that :(
