A Woman Is No Man
By Etaf Rum
Narrated by Ariana Delawari, Dahlia Salem & Susan Nezami / 10 hours 15 minutes
“A Woman Is No Man gives a rare and terrifying look into the lives of three generations of Palestinian and Palestinian-American women. Readers are invited into the secret world of these women living in Palestine and then Brooklyn; we watch nervously as they try to navigate and reconcile their two worlds — the violent, patriarchal world at home and the confusing, anti-cultural world outside their front door. I cringed at the pain and cheered at the successes of the women I came to know. This beautifully written book shines a light on an important topic. It is a story that must be told and, as importantly, must be heard.”Debra Barrett, Where the Sidewalk Ends
