How many of you have heard of the incredible Egyptian woman Zeynab al Ghazali?
Zeynab founded the Jamiat Al-Sayyidat-ul-Muslimeen (Muslim Women’s Association), an organisation for the welfare of the women especially the poor, orphans and the underprivileged.
Zeynab was imprisoned and tortured in the 1960’s. She sentenced to twenty-five year of hard labour in 1965 during the regime of Egyptian President Jamal Abdul Nasser.
This was a talk I gave recently about her time in Cairo’s darkest dungeons.
