Product Details



“Explains powerfully how Muslim women are affected by the rise of fundamentalism.”—Dan Rather

“Goodwin reminds us that the Koran nowhere supports the brutal treatment of women, and the educated women she quotes make this point clear… The author takes us on a tour of the Muslim world, finding horrors almost past belief.”—The New Yorker
