#FabulousVeilsNovel#Book Review

“As a non-Egyptian non-Arabic speaker, I am grateful to have an opportunity to learn about some of the struggles Egyptian women face. I also commend Iman for being brave to discuss these issues about women, sexuality, religion, and poverty that are perhaps seen as taboo subjects, for Egyptians and non-Egyptians, academics and non-academics, women and men. Honestly, it is important to discuss these issues. I am sure that many people might criticize this novel, as they have done for similar novels in the past, that expose what may be the worst of the worst in this amazing country. But, though it pained me to read many of the horrible acts these women were put through, as a woman, I can understand how it is precisely the silence and the fears instilled by men and women over other men and women that allow such acts to continue, and though they may not be happening to a large majority of the population, it is still important if it happens to just one person.”
