From the publisher

Bahiah Shaheen, an 18-year-old medical student and daughter of a prominent Egyptian public official, finds the male students in her class coarse and alien. Her father, too, seems to belong to a race apart. Frustrated by her hard-working, well-behaved, middle-class public persona, her meeting with a stranger at a gallery one day proves to be the beginning of her road to self-discovery and the start of her realization that fulfilment in life is indeed possible. Two Women in One is the story of countless women in the Third World, and speaks of their quest for emancipation and dignity.
