Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

Who will overthrow the Imam? Who will defeat the oppression, the tyranny, the injustice, and the killings? Then, who is the Imam? Is he the man, the male, the father, the husband, the ruler, the leader?

This powerful and poetic novel by Egypt’s leading feminist writer reveals the underlying hypocrisy of a male-dominated religious state and raises awareness of the insufferable predicament of women in a society that will ultimately self-destruct.

Nawal El Saadawi is an internationally renowned Egyptian writer and feminist. She is currently a distinguished visiting professor at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.


Review:
This powerful and poetic novel by "Egypt's most interesting feminist" ( Booklist ) raises awareness of the predicament of women in Egypt. The book tells the story of Bint Allah, a beautiful illegitimate girl, whose father is the Imam—the religious ruler in Islamic society believed to be representative of God. Bint Allah is falsely accused by the Imam of adulterous relationships, then sentenced to death by stoning. It is through the eyes of Bint Allah that one can see the underlying hypocrisy of a male-dominated religious state.
