Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women is the story of Brook's intrepid journey toward an understanding of the women behind the veils, and of the often contradictory political, religious, and cultural forces that shape their lives. In fundamentalist Iran, Brooks finagles an invitation to tea with the ayatollah's widow - and discovers that Mrs. Khomeini dyes her hair. In Saudi Arabia, she eludes the severe segregation of the sexes and attends a bacchanal, laying bare the hypocrisy of this austere, male-dominated society. In war-torn Ethiopia, she watches as a female gynecologist repairs women who have undergone genital mutilation justified by a distorted interpretation of Islam. In villages and capitals throughout the Middle East, she finds that a feminism of sorts has flowered under the forbidding shroud of the chador as she makes other startling discoveries that defy our stereotypes about the Muslim world. Nine Parts of Desire is much more than a captivating work of firsthand reportage; it is also an acute analysis of the world's fastest-growing religion, deftly illustrating how Islam's holiest texts have been misused to justify the repression of women. It was, after all, the Shiite leader Ali who proclaimed that "God created sexual desire in ten parts, then gave nine parts to women."… (mais)

Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women por Geraldine Brooks

  1. 00
    Mystic Iran the unseen world por Aryana Farshad (CtrSacredSciences)
    CtrSacredSciences: What happens when you are a journalist or filmmaker and set out on a project in the muslim world. What if you're a women journalist or filmmaker? Likely your original project is thwarted, and yet, perhaps something better, more interesting, and unique will come of it all.… (mais)

    In the Land of Invisible Women por Qanta Ahmed (krazy4katz)
    krazy4katz: Both books are well written and describe how women cope under Islamic law. Some of the details are surprising. The difference between the 2 authors is that Qanta Ahmed is a western-educated muslim trained as a physician. I think she has a somewhat more intimate perspective on the women she meets compared to Geraldine Brooks. However, both books are very good.… (mais)

    Baghdad Without a Map and Other Misadventures in Arabia por Tony Horwitz (amyblue)
    amyblue: Much more serious than Baghdad without a Map but tells of the same regions from a woman's perspective. Geraldine Brooks is married to Tony Horwitz and I think they both chronicled the same journey in these two books.

I've started reading Nine Parts of Desire a couple of times now and have not made it through yet; I get bogged down in the middle somehow with the details of political systems and the way it jumps around from place to place with different practices in each place. I also wonder what has changed over the 25 years since the book was written. The overall impression, of course, is of oppression of women's rights by those in authority (men!). This book focuses on Islam, but Christianity is certainly no stranger to this phenomenon either. The fundamentalists in our own country spring to mind immediately. It is disheartening to me how religion has been used for centuries by a self-appointed few (again, primarily men!) who claim to have inside knowledge of what is correct behavior for all and use their power to beat others over the head, figuratively and often literally.

EL MUNDO DE LAS MUJERES MUSULMANAS, DESDE LA REINA NOOR A CUALQUIER AMA DE CASA, ATLETA, GUERRILLERA, EN CUALQUIER PAÍS MUSULMAN O FUERA DE ÉL. ( )

A very interesting book.
As a whole I liked it, it was nicely written. I found the jumping from one country to another, from one occasion to another at times confusing, but the main reason I read this book (information about women and their role(s) in Islamic societies, I got that already :-) ( )

Prologue
The hotel receptionist held my reservation card in his hand.
As the bus full of women inched and squealed its slow way through Tehran traffic toward Khomeini's home, I was the only one on board who wasn't weeping.

Could Rana Kabbani not have taken the trouble to reflect that one in five Muslim girls lives in a community where some form of clitoridectomy is sanctioned and religiously justified by local Islamic leaders? Or to note the chapters on "Women and Circumcision" appearing in many new editions of Islamic texts, especially in Egypt?
And the men whose wives she was helping didn't always like the effect of her help. A rug-weaving project on a wind-swept hilltop named Jebel Bani Hamida had been a roaring success because the women could do the work at home on simple, traditional looms made of sticks and stones. The queen had helped with design and organization, then bought the rugs as gifts for Jordan's official visitors. She also visited the women, squatting beside them in the dust and listening to their problems. The money for the rugs went straight to the women, giving them a measure of independence for the first time in their lives. One of them used the money from her first rug to pay for bus fare to the city to file for a divorce.
Downstairs, in the formal sitting room, I'd been keeping my eye on a side table full of silver-framed pictures of world leaders. Since the start of the Gulf crisis, the pictures had been in constant motion. Saddam Hussein had slipped from the front row after his invasion of Kuwait. Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak had disappeared altogether, while George Bush had been pushed behind a lamp. That night George Bush had reemerged, positioned cheek by jowl with Saddam, as if to send the message that Jordan was, after all, a neutral party in the conflict. In front was a picture I'd never seen before: Pope John Paul II, who had just called for an immediate end to the war.
When I first visited Gaza in 1987, girls, unveiled and wearing blue jeans, had been in the streets alongside the youths, throwing stones at Israeli soldiers. Mothers had been right behind them, ready with wet cloths or cut onions to counter the effects of tear gas. Women had gained stature from their role in such protests. Now, thanks to Hamas, women had been sent back home, to manufacture male babies and avoid waste in household expenditures.
