Book description
Middle Eastern Muslim women speak to us across thirteen centuries, from Spain to Afghanistan. Included are poetry, literature, biographies, and political and social writings. Here is a work of authenticity which allows readers to develop understandings of Islam in the words of women themselves.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0292750412, Paperback)

"In this breakthrough of startling, refreshing voices, superficially simple women's lore (like the singing of lullabies) comes alive." --Whole Earth Review This volume is a collection of autobiographical and biographical writings by and about Middle Eastern women. Many of the selections have been translated by the editors from Arabic, Persian, or French; they not only represent real women from a wide range of occupations, points of view, and socioeconomic status, but also touch on major themes in the contemporary Muslim world.
