Souad is a girl born in a traditional small village in Palestine. Girls were worth less than a cow in the eyes of society. Women have no rights, they are only slaves of men. They can beat you, hurt you, kill you and no one will say a word. It is okay because they are men and the women must have done something wrong and worth it.
Like you know, picking a green tomato or giving birth to a girl. And the worst of it, all the girls are submissives. Just like their mothers and daughters later.
So by marriage, a girl can get her freedom even if her husband would still beat her deadly but at least, she can go out alone. She can easily be called a whore and a slut, for a mere whisper and rumor. In an atmosphere like this one, you can only imagine what would happen to a girl who loses her virginity, let alone gets pregnant before marriage.
And that what happened with Souad. A seventeen years old girl who dreams of being wed to serve her husband and most of all, be free. But unfortunately, the older sister must get married first. And hers is almost 20 and still single. Having sex before marriage is the most dishonourable taboo. Her brother-in-law was responsible given the task to end her life. By burning her with the baby. She was burned alive. And survived.
After a long journey, Souad tells her story how she escaped this society and was introduced to a world where women equal men. And we have studied a lot about these communities.
No one had survived anyway and came back to tell his story. Still, I was surprised to know that in Palestine we still have something horrifying like this in the 60s. This book shows the story of a woman who survived so many hardships and came back to tell her unbelievable story. Maybe she was mistaken with " k harouf" which means a lamb.
