Festival of Ideas invite Nawal El Saadawi to Bristol

We’re delighted to promote this event with a truly inspiring woman.

Here’s the blurb:

The Bristol Festival of Ideas is pleased to present a discussion with the celebrated writer Nawal El Saadawi to mark the launch of new editions of some of her classic works, published by Zed Books. Her powerful and hypnotic novels – including Woman at Point Zero and God Dies By the Nile – tackle religion, love and female emancipation in the Middle East while her book The Hidden Face of Eve is a non-fiction account of female oppression in the Arab world, which was inspired by her experiences as a doctor in villages around Egypt. The Financial Times has described her as ‘The most influential feminist thinker in the Arab world over the past half-century.’

She talks about her work as a writer, her involvement in campaigns for women’s rights and social justice, and her life in Egypt.
