Disenchanted: One Woman's Journey for Independence from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
DENIED BASIC RIGHTS: As a child in Saudi Arabia, Nabila knew no other life than that in which she lived, a society where women had no rights. Females could not attend school, pursue careers unless sanctioned by the government, drive cars, or choose their husbands. From birth to marriage, women in Nabila’s culture remained under the control of males: a father, a brother, or a husband.
ENCHANTED BY FREEDOM: As a young bride, Nabila moved with her new husband to the United States, where he pursued a college degree, and where Nabila’s world was opened to endless possibilities. Though the move was temporary, Nabila was enchanted and she knew she would return. Disenchanted: One Woman’s Journey for Independence from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is Nabila’s story of trying to find happiness and fulfillment in her homeland, but ultimately, having to sacrifice family for freedom.
