$13,852 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 249 people in 4 months
Created February 13, 2019
Nawal El Saadawi, the first woman  Egyptian physician, feminist writer, activist, and psychiatrist has committed her life to the liberation of women and speaking truth to power through her writings on the subject of women in Islam, paying particular attention to the practice of female genital mutilation in her society. She has suffered imprisonment and censorship for the cause of the freedom of others, and has been described as "the Simone de Beauvoir of the Arab World". Now in her late 80s, she is ill, facing expensive surgery and post-hospital care bills beyond her means. The Egyptian government has said they will help her too; we hope they do.

Hello Friends, there has been a strange twitter thread from Nawal's "official" twitter site saying that Nawal is not associated with this campaign. I want to assure you that all that has been shared about her condition and this campaign is legitimate; these funds will be delivered to Nawal by Omnia Amin. I wanted to get ahead of any rumors and send this note to all who have and continue to donate. Many thanks. Diana and Omnia.
