Description

Saudi Arabia is one of the most closed countries in the world. Nicola Sutcliff decided to go behind the veil for four years living, working and socialising in Saudi society. Through personal interviews, thirty women share their stories: from world-renowned activists to wives in polygamous households; high-ranking princesses to desert-dwelling bedouins. They talk candidly about the issues most intriguing to a Western audience – driving, sister wives and the religious police – as well as lesser known aspects of their lives, including under-the-abaya fashion, underground parties, and the practice of ‘purchasing’ husbands online. This compelling book also includes timely essays on wide-ranging subjects including driving, transgenderism, male guardianship, religion, politics and sexuality. Authentic, eye-opening, inspiring, courageous, this book will challenge stereotypes and reveal the intimate thoughts and details of women's lives in this most intriguing and mysterious of countries. At a time when the Kingdom appears to be on the cusp of change, this unique book captures the essence of what it is like to be a woman living in Saudi Arabia today.
