A Gossip of Pen and Paper!

Abir Hamdar

Abstract


My aunt has warned me against writing the story of Tante Amira. She says the lady is her friend and I shouldn’t start gossiping with my pen and paper. I try to convince her … I speak to her about the history of women’s oppression, the coming
of the feminist movement, some human rights’ achievements … I tell her certain things would not have been possible were it not for what she calls the gossip of pen and paper ... I tell her changes would not have been conceivable had we all kept silent
