On Being a Woman Writer: Nawal El Saadawi in Conversation

Nawal El Saadawi draws on her epic life story and prolific writing

The internationally renowned writer, novelist, psychiatrist and fighter for women’s rights was born in 1931, in a village outside Cairo, and wrote her first novel at the age of 13. Her many books have been translated into over forty languages and include titles such as Woman at Point Zero and Women and Sex, which was banned in Egypt for almost two decades. She reflects on the question of gender and the challenges posed for women within traditional and religious societies.

Part of Africa Writes, a vibrant programme of events showcasing the best new writing from across the continent and the Diaspora.
