Nawal El Saadawi

The Fall of the Imam

Bint Allah knows herself only as the Daughter of God. Born in a stifling male-dominated state, ruled by the Imam and his coterie of ministers, she dreams of one day reaching the top of a distant hill visible through the bars of the orphanage window.
But Bint Allah’s ambitions do not escape the attention of the Imam, who never feels secure no matter how well he protects himself. When the Imam falsely accuses Bint Allah of adultery and sentences her to death by stoning, he is not prepared for what happens next.
A postmodern fantasia, this powerful and poetic novel is a call to arms against those who use religion as a weapon against women.

    A buffalo costs more on the market than a woman, so a man can have four wives, but he can only afford one buffalo.
