The talk will tell the stories of a few pioneering women, both Arab and non-Arab. These stories come from Emily’s multi book on Pioneering Women (Sayidat Ra’eedat).
Emily Nasrallah is one of the leading fiction writers in Lebanon and the Arab world. She has published scores of books. Her coverage goes beyond fiction into various social subjects. As expected from her modern entry in such social subjects, Emily Nasrallah became a prolific writer, publishing many novels, children’s stories and short story collections touching on themes such as family, village life, war, emigration and women’s rights. The latter has been a subject she has maintained support for throughout her life. However, she insists such themes must jointly address both men and women.
