Starr Forum - Sex and the Citadel: Intimate Life in a Changing Arab World

This event took place on March 14, 2013

Book Talk with Shereen El Feki

SHEREEN EL FEKI is a writer, broadcaster, and academic who started her professional life in medical science before going on to become an award-winning journalist for The Economist and a presenter at Al Jazeera English. She is former vice-chair of the UN's Global Commission on HIV and Law, and a TED Global Fellow. She divides her time between London and Cairo.

Her newly released book, Sex and the Citadel, is a fascinating, groundbreaking look at changing sexual attitudes and behaviour in the Arab world, and their part in 2011's popular revolts.
