She was trapped behind the veil of hell

Attractive exucated in Oxdord, and a respected journalist, Cherry Mosteshar seemed the last woman likely to become a terrified Islamic bride; beaten if a wisp of hair showed from beneath her head scarf, forbidden from leaving the country without her husband's permission, and legally worth half a man.

Shelves: memoir
What is passing for culture in the Middle East is puzzling and fascinating to Westerners, as the Koran is used to push women into sacks and back rooms, and this behavior is described as honoring and protecting womanhood.

“... научих колко лесно
с да отминеш и да допуснеш извършването на неспра
ведливост. Все си повтарям, че не можех да сторя нищо, но вън
реки това изпитвам срам. Някакъв старец, може би на възрастта
на дядо ми, стоеше между двама паедари, докато ссмейщ

колцината млади мъже, всички със завързани зад гърба ръце
бяха откарани нанякъде. В това време старецът плачеше
Преминахме мълчаливо край гази сцена, излязла сякаш от ня
кой нацистки филм.”
