Fatema Mernissi (au). Fatema Mernissi reveals her unique experiences as a liberated, independent Moroccan woman faced with the unexpected encroachments of Western culture. Her surprising discoveries about the conditions of & attitudes toward women around the world -- & the exquisitely embroidered amalgam of clear-eyed autobiography & dazzling meta-fiction by which she relates those assorted discoveries -- add up to a wry, engaging, & penetrating narrative. Mernissi -- widely recognized as the world’s greatest living Koranic scholar & Islamic sociologist -- here trains her eyes on the female culture of the West. She offers a provocative challenge to the common assumption that women have it so much better in the West than anywhere else in the world.
