I have long wanted my first book Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution to be available in Arabic, the first language I spoke. It is already available in 11 other languages. Soon, I will have good news about Arabic!
The English-language edition of Headscarves and Hymens is banned in #Saudi Arabia, #UAE, #Kuwait and probably #Qatar too. So you can imagine what it has been like trying to sell the Arabic-language rights!
And soon too I will have Arabic subtitles for FEMINIST GIANT Rants - my one-minute videos - and I promise I’ll be soon recording some rants in Arabic too. You can find all the rants on my YouTube channel - go look for it and subscribe 😘
But I must say - Arabic or English - my now customary Fuck the Patriarchy will always be delivered in English ✊🏽
And I must thank my #Saudi regime trolls - their insane orchestrated attacks have brought back my Arabic, loud and clear ✊🏽
