The author has written the book on behalf of princess Sultana of Saudi Arabia. The book is an account of the stature and posture of women of the kingdom, how they lack some of the most basic rights and how they suffer at the hand of it. This book introduced me to the inhuman and really torturous practice of genital mutilation. The princess tries to focus on how some of the tribes of Saudi are reluctant to evolve and leave behind such cruel rituals. The princess has tried to describe the various facets of the stature of women by laying down a lot of instances ranging from the modern Saudi women to the extremely conservative women(both of them being her own daughters). She has also given instances of women who she encountered while working for charity. All in all, it definitely is a very good read in non-fiction genre.
