I finally finished my Women in the Middle East book review
Its finally done! I read this beautiful, informative book, Women in the Middle East; Tradition and Change by Ramsy M. Harik and Elsa Marston, and I had to write a book review of it for my final project in my Ethics class. It is truly eye opening, I admit, I had my racist Americanized misconceptions of the Middle East and how it treated its women, and now I can honestly say I have a new found respect for the hardships they face and a much better understanding of the discrimination they go through. This is definitely a subject I want to research further.
I highly suggest others read this book and shed their ignorance about other cultures.
I have been meaning to start reading again, I haven’t finished a book in months. I started reading a book I got from my college, A History of the Wife by Marilyn Yalom. It is very, very good so far. I hope to be finished with it by the end of July so I can crack open my other book on Middle Eastern women. Especially because they are all overdue.
