Summary
As someone who has a foot in both the Western and Arabic worlds, Amal Awad set out to explore the lives of Arab women, in Australia and the Middle East, travelling to the region and interviewing more than sisty women about feminism, intimacy, love, sex and shame, trauma, war, religion and culture. Beyond Veiled Cliches explores the similarities and differences experienced by these women in their daily lives - work, relationships, home and family life, friendships, the communities they live in, and more. Arab-Australian women are at the intersection - between Western ideals and Arab tradition. It can get messy, but there is also great beauty in the layers. In a time racial tension and rising global fear around terrorism there is a renewed fear of 'the other'. At its heart this gascinating book normalises people and their experiences. The breadth, variety and beauty of what Amal has discovered will enthral and suprise you
