about this book

In this absorbing account, Elizabeth Fernea examines the daily lives of women in a small rural village in southern Iraq. For two years, Fernea lived in El Nahra, Southern Iraq, where, in addition to cultural norms such as polygamy, no social communications between women and men are allowed. This ethnographic study provides insight into a part of Middle Eastern life seldom seen by the West: the sheltered lives of Haren women.
