Last night, I finished Mona Eltahawy's illuminating Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution. Let me tell you something: this was *rough* to get through. To give you an idea, the following were just some of the topics discussed: rape, sexual assault, child marriage, street harassment, domestic violence, police brutality, and FGM (female genital mutilation). So yeah. Not exactly a light read. β–ͺ️
.
This is a scholarly text, filled with tons of statistics, references to various academic works, and snippets of interviews with Arab women. Eltahawy is unflinching and completely unapologetic in her critiques on the pervasive misogyny of the Middle East and North Africa, detailing how religious, cultural, and economic oppression reduces millions of women to second-class citizens. The overarching thesis is that the Middle East is in dire need of a cultural and sexual revolution, headed by women. While she is obviously critical of the current society, she makes it clear that what she objects to is the totalitarian patriarchy headed by clerics--not to Islam itself. In fact, she cites Quran teachings as well as popular (and quite erotic) poetry written by Muslim women in the early half of the 20th century to argue that the current social norm of repressed sexuality is contradictory to what she considers true Islamic teaching. β–ͺ️
.
Eltahawy's take on the hijab was particularly interesting. She started wearing hijab in her teenage years, in what she refers to as a defense mechanism against the rise of unwanted sexual attention from men. It didn't work. Almost as if the sexual harassment and assault directed her way had nothing to do with her wardrobe, and everything to do with power structures..... πŸ€” Anyway after eight years, she stopped veiling---and now she seems pretty against the practice. I found this a little startling. What do you think? β–ͺ️
