9781846590627: The Fall of the Imam

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.

It is through the eyes of Bint Allah that one can see the underlying hypocrisy of a male-dominated religious state.
