The novel Zeina by Nawal el Saadawi is full of irony and satire in its narrative which displays the hypocrisy and anti-feminism inherent in the Moslem religion, both in scripture and in practice. It’s often subtle, but generally recognized easily. One passage struck me as being very cleverly written—almost postmodern—so I’d like to share it. Please read the book yourself to enjoy even more examples of the author’s skill in writing.
Who knew that Republicans lived in Saudi Arabia?

(Reuters) – A conservative Saudi Arabian cleric has said women who drive risk damaging their ovaries and bearing children with clinical problems, countering activists who are trying to end the Islamic kingdom’s male-only driving rules.
A campaign calling for women to defy the ban in a protest drive on October 26 has spread rapidly online over the past week and gained support from some prominent women activists. On Sunday, the campaign’s website was blocked inside the kingdom.
