Mona Eltahawy at Bluestockings

The Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy has fought for the autonomy, security, and dignity of Muslim women, drawing vocal supporters and detractors. Now, in her first book, Headscarves and Hymens, Eltahawy has prepared a definitive condemnation of the repressive forces-political, cultural, and religious-that reduce millions of women to second-class citizens. Join her for a reading and Q&A at Bluestockings to celebrate the launch of Headscarves and Hymens in paperback.
