Headscarves and Hymens:
Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution
Award-winning Egyptian American feminist writer and commentator Mona Eltahawy is no stranger to controversy. Through her articles in The Washington Post, The New York Times, and more, she has fought for the autonomy, security, and dignity of Muslim women, drawing widespread supporters and detractors. In Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution, she offers an illuminating and incendiary manifesto on the repressive forces—political, cultural, and religious—that reduce millions of women to second-class citizens. Hear from Eltahawy—a woman motivated by hope and fury—about her revolutionary new book and this bold call to action for equal rights in the Middle East.
