Abstract

Egyptian-born physician, psychiatrist, and writer Nawal El Saadawi identifies herself as a historical socialist feminist. In her life that spanned over eighty-nine years, she has fought aggressively for the emancipation of women and men from oppressive structures. El Saadawi’s writings are a mirror that showcases her feelings on various issues plaguing the world. She is a dissident through and through and her novels have women who are equally dissident. As El Saadawi professes dissidence is a necessary tool to fight injustice.
