Nawal El Saadawi was imprisoned in 1981 by Anwar Sadat for alleged "crimes against the State." She offers both firsthand witness to women's resistance to state violence and insights into the formation of women's community. Saadawi describes how political prisoners, both secular intellectuals and Islamiists, forged alliances to demand better conditions.
