Description

This is not a manifesto against men in general. Nor is it a manifesto against Arab men in particular.

It is, however, a howl in the face of a particular species of men: the macho species, Supermen, as they like to envision themselves.

But Superman is a lie. In this explosive sequel to I Killed Scheherazade, Joumana Haddad examines the patriarchal system that continues to dominate in the Arab world and beyond.

From monotheist religions and the concept of marriage to institutionalised machismo and widespread double standards, Joumana reflects upon the vital need for a new masculinity in these times of revolution and change in the Middle East.
