A Woman is No Man

by Etaf Rum

Revealing the brutal lifestyle endured by Palestinian women living in one of the richest countries in the world, I was shocked by what amounts to home slavery. These women have no voice and are trapped by what their culture demands. Etaf Rum's story needed to be told and has taken the USA by storm but it doesn't make easy reading.


Isra wondered if this was what it meant to be an American: having a voice. She wished she knew how to speak her mind, wished she could have said these things to Mama: that girls are just as valuable as boys, that their culture was unfair.
