My queer feminist book club would like to read a nonfiction
text that examines the lives of Muslim women. The book can be academic, biographical, essays, or journalism. We are trying to avoid books which sensationalize or oversimplify the subject.
One author we are considering is Nawal El Sadaawi
. If you're familiar with her work, could you suggest which book to read?
