“Frank, enraging, and captivating.”
The New Yorker

“Powerful and enlightening…Brooks presents stunning vignettes of Muslim women…and carefully distinguishes misogyny and oppressive cultural traditions from what she considers the true teachings of the Koran.”
Publishers Weekly

“There has been nothing finer on the subject from a Western observer…she looks at it from the heart…mixing historical perspective with piercingly observed journalism.”

“Avoids both the sensational and the stereotypical…insightful…a valid, entertaining account of women in the Muslim world.”
New York Times Book Review

“A rare look at a significant segment of the world’s population that literally has been cloaked in mystery for generations.”
Seattle Times
