It's plain why Sasson used this title. Intelligent, well educated, carefree woman decides to travel alone to Saudi Arabia and work in hospital administration. While there she discovers the complete oppression of women and, naive chick that she is, thinks she can wake the women up to their situation and convince them to organize so that they can recover their rights. This was in 1979. 33 years later we see just how effective her pecking around was. This is sort of an introduction to all the books Jean Sasson has written about strong women in dangerous situations. I may read more of her full length stuff.
