Check out this rare first person account by a Lebanese woman on sex and left-wing politics.
Here’s my beef with the author though: Liberation is all about self-reliance. I don’t know why she’s asking the sisterhood to shield her from her bad experience. It would be like moving from the guardianship of her parents to the guardianship of her peers. The point of empowerment is this: You’re your own person now, and you have to suck it up when things go bad, confident in the thought that you’re becoming a stronger person.
