Editorial Reviews

Review

“Both witty and wonderfully written, [The Greater Freedom is] an essential read that examines cultural stereotypes and the notion of belonging.” —Culturefly

“What a book! The Greater Freedom has blown my mind with all the ways a Middle Eastern woman living outside of the stereotypes survives and thrives, and the research is impeccable too. What a gift to the world!” —Laura Jane Williams, bestselling author of Becoming and Our Stop

The Greater Freedom is what all good books should be: engaging, educational, and an escape into a world outside of your own, that you should know far more about. Mooro speaks truth to power and debunks stereotypes with wit, style and sass.” —Yomi Adegoke, bestselling author of Slay in Your Lane

“Well written and properly researched…Alya Mooro’s voice is true and strong, delivering a book that has great value for anyone interested in the politics of gender, and how we navigate eternal expectations from family and society. This personal and heartfelt narrative asks what it truly means to be free.” —Amal Awad, author of Beyond Veiled Cliché

The Greater Freedom is such an important read, regardless of your background. It gives a refreshing, honest, and insightful narrative of how it feels to be a woman caught between cultures, and Alya has done an amazing job of blending her voice with an impressive amount of research. TGF helps break down stereotypes and educate others—we need more books like this!” —Sunayah Arshad, writer, Azeema Magazine
