Returning to circulation a wealth of important documents by Middle Eastern and Occidental women of the late Ottoman empire, this book traces women's involvement in campaigns of gender and national emancipation. Contrary to the popular notion of the Middle Eastern woman trapped inside the harem without access to outside education, there was in fact a fruitful mutual dialogue between the Western women travellers and the women in the regions they visited.
Dealing with a range of themes including family, polygamy, faith, slavery and race, writers include Halide Edib, Musbah Haidar, Melek Hanum, Emmeline Lott, Elizabeth Cooper and Ruth Frances Woodsmall.
