Mona Eltahawy’s book, Headscarves and Hymens: Why The Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution, seeks to inspire and outrage in its readers. In it, she details her personal story and journey to feminism alongside a larger portrait of what it means to be a woman in the Middle East. Her book extends the argument originally made in her seminal article for Foreign Policy entitled, “Why do They Hate Us?.” She argues that although the Arab Spring may have overthrown tyrannical regimes, the revolution for women has yet to begin.
