Bint Arab: Arab and Arab American women in the United States
Shakir tells the long neglected story of the bint arab--the Arab woman--in the United States. Weaving together a survey from the late 19th century to the present, she focuses on each generation's negotiation between traditional Arab values and the social and sexual liberties permitted women in the West. Interspersing oral histories, Shakir challenges stereotypes and creates a unique and fascinating portrait of an often misunderstood group.
