The Feminist Novel is on the Rise in the Arab Gulf

This sums up the need for intersectional feminism beautifully:
In “Manifesto,” Kareem writes: “I write against the Woman who thinks brazenly that we are one. She, whose behind perches upon the comfortable chair of citizenship, class, and race.”

I also appreciate Kareem's critical look at the popular Gulf Arabic women's writing. It is an important reminder to me that media doesn't exist in a vacuum, even when it's "just" for entertainment and that thoughtless consumption leads to further thoughtless creation.
