Editorial Reviews

Review

While several chapters feel crucial to
current discussions of transnational feminist solidarity--Mohja Kahf s
Pity Committee and the Careful Reader and an interview with Ella
Shohat--the book s approach and value is perhaps most visible in one of
its more striking essays, Amal Amireh s Palestinian Women s Disappearing
Act: The Suicide Bomber !rough Western Feminist Eyes. --Women's Studies Quarterly

A dynamic and multifaceted as well as intimate narrative of the pattern of rising xenophobia against Arabs and Muslims in the post-September 11, 2001, United States. --Choice

2012 Arab American Book Award Winner for Non-Fiction --National Arab American Museum

this is a collection of articles that reflects on the state of arab american women. it is so informative. it explains every aspect related to the lives of arab american women. it even connects the idea of their oppression and their struggle to the struggle of african american women. it also explain the similarities and differences between arab femininsm and arab american feminisms. it is an excellent, thorough reference that the writers took a lot of pain to write. it includes many forms of writings but the whole book can be categorized as personal essay. it is worth every cent.

Format: Hardcover
I don't know how ANYONE can write a book about Arab feminism and not talk about female genital mutilation, honor killings, the practive of marrying of little girls to old men, or the imprisonment of women in their homes who may not leave without a male overseer. Yet- She devotes a section to Israel as if this tiny country of a few million people who are mostly not arab or Muslim is somehow in Abdulhadi's mind more relevant to Arab feminism than the abuses and spread of sharia through Muslim and traditionally non-Muslim lands alike. Also absent is reference to facial acid burnings, a common "punishment" for a woman who dares refuse an overture and sometimes even between spouses, as is the common practice of the judiciary killing a woman for adultery when she attempts to report a rape and the predictably high levels of unreported rape in those countries. The sad desperation of women who involve themselves in terrorism, naively hoping that their 'sacrifice' will make them "equal to a man" in the eyes of Islam. There are many evils of colonization, but the plight of women in the Muslim world, which transcends economic lines is not one of them, that is a beast of the cultures own doing. In going through this book I found myself repeatedly asking why she wrote it at all. It's certainly not addressing any of the sources of oppression in women's lives, nor does it offer a plan to rally around to improve the female situation. She is here in cushey US, and when she does go back it is as a celebrity, so she doesn't have to face and live under that oppression. If you want a good book on Arab feminism Jan Goodwin's "The Price of Honor" is more informative and has more integrity. It's written in the 90's but nothing much has improved since then, if anything, it's gotten worse as sharia has spread to oppress women who previously knew at least some levels of freedom and personhood.
