FOREWORD BY CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR, CNN Chief International Correspondent and host of Amanpour
FIRST-PERSON ACCOUNTS: Most books about Arab women and the Arab world are reported from an outsider’s perspective. Here, we get to hear from Arab women themselves, who prove that they’re not the silent, oppressed women they’re often made out to be with intimate, personal essays that range from heartbreaking to darkly funny.
