Summary
Journalist Mona Eltahawy has spent years campaigning against the widespread repression of women in Arab countries. Her first book, Headscarves and Hymens , details the cultural and political -- as well as religious -- customs that dictate oppressive and demeaning requirements such as veils, virginity tests, and worse. Despite criticism from Human Rights Watch and other global agencies, governments in these countries (including Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and Saudi Arabia) deny the abuses are occurring. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
