muhajababes...

...a term coined by British author Allegra Stratton to describe hip, trendy, modern, veiled women mostly in the Middle East. This also means to the majority of us, veiled women in weird unfitting clothes and layers upon layers of ridiculously put on make-up. That phenomenon unfortunately is not constricted to the borders of Kuwait like I thought, but was as wide-spread as the corruption in our old beloved mid-east. the book... ...I only bought it to read the part about Kuwait, which I found disappointing. She was into the political scene in Kuwait starting from Kuwait University to the demonstrations for women's rights in front of the parliament. Unfortunately, that was overshadowed by "Elton" the homosexual and his support for the segregation policy in order for more boys to hit on him. ...the book is an affirmation to most moderate people’s beliefs -living in the area- in regards to conservative Islam taking over. But I expect it to be an eye-opener to people unaware of the situation in the mid-east. conclusion... ...It was a fun easy read unlike most current affairs books.
