My Rating: A+ My Review: You would think after years and years of hearing about how Arab women are treated, after being a child in the early 90's when we put troops in Saudi Arabia, that it would be hard to shock me. But even after hearing from my parents and teachers what is done there, I have to admit that there where times when reading this book that I would have to set it down and digest what I'd just read. It was hard to wrap my mind around the passive violence, the archaic and brutal laws for not only women but foreigners to the land as well, and the vast wealth that the royal family in this country controls. I smiled often at the little victories that these women would obtain and cried when I read of the horrors they would have to go through and were expected to put up with. I was also amazed by Sultana's brutal honesty about not only the wicked men in her country but also the 'lazy' women who would talk about fighting for their rights, but never quite stand up and do what it took. This is an amazing and eye opening read. I recommend it to any woman!
