An egyptian woman's reflections on her changing homeland‚aiupdated with an afterword on the arab springin language that vividly evokes the lush summers of cairo and the stark beauty of the arabian desert, leila ahmed movingly recounts her egyptian childhood growing up in a rich tradition of islamic women and describes how she eventually came to terms with her identity as a feminist living in america. As a young woman in cairo in the forties and fifties, ahmed witnessed some of the major transformations of this century‚aithe end of british colonialism, the rise of arab nationalism, and the breakdown of egypt's once multireligious society. As today's egypt continues to undergo revolutionary change, ahmed's inspirational story remains as poignant and relevant as ever.
