I have to do a speech on female rights in the Middle East. I have no clue what to write so could you please e-mail me as soon as possible and help me out.

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. Because the "middle east" is a pretty big area--and, therefore, includes many diverse cultures--your project is likely to be overwhelming. I do recommend that you try to focus is around one country, religion, etc....To help you do this, there are a couple of things I suggest you read:
  • Thomas Friedman's book--From Beirut to Jerusalem
  • The Price of Honor: Muslim Women Lift the Veil of Silence on the Islamic World by Jan Goodwin.
  • Sisterhood Is Global edited by Robin Morgan--this includes a synopsis on different countries.
Also, the work of Nawa El Sadawi (on Muslim society) and Alice Shalvi (Israel) might lead you someplace. To find these books--and more--go to the FEMINIST.COM bookstore.
