Book Review of Both Right and Left Handed: Arab Women Talk About Their Lives

Both Right and Left Handed: Arab Women Talk About Their Lives
BettySunshine avatar reviewed on + 30 more book reviews

This society of Muslims is totally different from other societies. Here the men wear veils and women have a unique type of emancipation.
