Nawal El Saadawi – Feminist Trailblazer
Saturday 4th April – 5pm

The leading spokeswoman on the status of women in the Arab world.” The Guardian

Considered by many to be the first female Muslim author to write about feminism, sex and the veil, Nawal El Saadawi has published numerous novels as well as writing extensively about her own life. Nawal first brought the experiences of Arab women to the attention of the west in the 1970s with titles including ‘The Hidden Face of Eve’ and ‘Woman at Point Zero’, describing the harrowing conditions for women in her native Egypt.

Housmans are delighted to welcome Nawal El Saadawi, who will be in London for a rare visit to celebrate the re-issue of four of her classic titles. Nawal will be discussing her life’s work, answering questions, and signing copies of her books.

Sonalle: Ethnic Minority Domestic Violence Survivors
Saturday 18th April – 5pm

During our relationship, I asked his family for help but they never helped me. His sister suggested to ignore what he was doing and concentrate on me and the baby. He strangled me on many occasions, so it wasn’t easy to ignore what he was doing.”

Housmans are delighted to host the latest exhibition from up and coming photographer Sonalle, whose latest work explores ethnic minority domestic violence survivors. Sonalle will be joined by guests from Southall Black Sisters, and by Margaret Aberdeen, who has survived domestic violence.
