Nawal El Saadawi, famous Egyptian feminist author, dies aged 89

El Saadawi was referred to as a protector of ladies’s rights and combated highly versus the prevalent practice of female genital anomaly.

She was imprisoned and maltreated and gotten hazards from conservatives throughout her life for her bold views.

El Saadawi was the creator and president of the Arab Women’s Uniformity Association and co-founder of the Arab Association for Person Rights. In 1981, she established a feminist publication called “Al-Moawgaha” (which equates to “The Confrontation”).

El Saadawi’s most popular books are “Women & Sex” and “Memoirs from a Women’s Prison.”

“Women and Sex” was prohibited in Egypt for almost 20 years and after it was released, El Saadawi lost her job as a Director of Public Health at the Ministry of Health in Egypt.

“Women cannot be liberated in a class society or a male-dominated patriarchal society. This is why we have to get rid, fight against class oppression, gender oppression, and religious oppression,” El Saadawi informed CNN in an interview in 2011. “We cannot speak about revolution without women,” she stated.

There has actually been a profusion of sorrow at the news of El Saadawi’s death, with some popular activists revealing their acknowledgements on social networks.

“Such a sad loss for our region, our world,” stated Turkish author and ladies’s rights activist, Elif Shafak, in a tweet. “Rest in peace, rest in power, sisterhood and books.”
Egyptian-born author and Feminist Giant author Mona Eltahawy priced quote El Saadawi’s unique “Woman at Point Zero”, stating “I am speaking the truth. and the truth is savage and dangerous.”

“Egyptian feminist Nawal El Saadawi has died. Until I gather my thoughts: rest in power, Nawal,” she included a tweet.
