When I was searching for my weekly book to read, the book of Daughters of Arabia by Jean Sasson has attracted me, for a while I thought what is going wrong with our daughters, is something happened wh
ch is not obvious to me as an Arabic person, suddenly the book was picked up by my hand, I was too curious to know what was wrong with our daughters. Arabic-speaking countries stretching from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the Arabian Sea in the east, and from the Mediterranean Sea in the north to the Horn of Africa and the Indian Ocean in the southeast. It consists of 24 countries and territories with a combined population of 325 million people with a different traditions and colors: to write about them daughters hundred of books and thousands of pages might not be enough, it might takes an years to conclude Arabs daughters in one book. Islam has changed the women role from being treated as slaves to play a great role in the life, the history is still talking about them; because of Islam women become a real partner to success the life. Arabs are like other nations they have been attacked by globalization, concept of Islam is still clear to the majority but also its not obvious to others, the writer with the title mentioned that all Arabs daughters are facing the same situation. The story is clearly taking about Saudi princess, her family life and the way which all females are treated in her family, but the situation is totally different in other countries, For example women in United Arab Emirates has them complete rights, the right of education, occupation and marriage even they are playing a big role in the government. In my opinion the title of the book is misleading the readers, especially those who had never heard about Arabs or about Islam religion. In my opinion the writer should be more careful in selecting her subject which tell the truth not just use the subject for marketing purpose. References: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_World less
