Greetings. In this post , we share several interviews with Dr. Nawal El Saadawi from Egypt.
Dr. Saadawi is a formidable medical doctor, author, campaigner and activist and a leading Egyptian, Arab and Global feminist voice. She was born in 1931, in the village of Kafr Tahla, just north of Cairo, the second of nine children. She graduated from the University of Cairo in 1955, specialising in psychiatry, and returned to Kafr Tahla to work as a doctor, over the years becoming increasingly prominent. She has written more than 50 books in Arabic and many of these have been translated to over 30 different languages.
Dr. Saadawi is the subject of the film She Spoke the Unspeakable, directed by Jill Nicholls, broadcast in February 2017 in the BBC One television series Imagine.
