She Spoke the Unspeakable - Nawal El Saadawai

Post by HEPZIBAH »

I've only just seen this programme advertised (but I think it will be iplayer afterwards).

BBC1 10-45pm Tues 21st February 2017

She Spoke the Unspeakable
imagine..., Winter 2017

The Egyptian author Nawal El Saadawi is a global legend, as outspoken, hilarious and totally un-self-censored at 85 as she ever was, she remains a force of nature. Imagine... visits her at home in Cairo and travels with her to the village where she was born.

A writer of over 50 books and a winner of numerous international awards, she is famed as a pioneer in the fight against female genital mutilation, to which she herself was subjected. In this edition of the programme, she addresses some of the world's biggest challenges in a surprising and personal way.

I needed an early night but I stayed up to watch this programme. Very glad I did. I now want to read some of her books.

Start perhaps with her 'Woman at Point Zero': Firdaus, a murderess who is
about to be hanged, tells her story to her prison visitor (ie El Sadaawi ....)
