Nawal Al Saadawi

This week in the second of two special programmes recorded in Egypt, Razia Iqbal talks to the feminist campaigner Nawal Al Saadawi.

Al Saadawi was born in a remote village in Egypt in 1931.

In a fiercely conservative country she has spent her life fighting for women's rights, including campaigns against female circumcision, domestic violence and political exclusion.

In a country where just over half the adult female population can read and write, Razia Iqbal asks her how her books have contributed to her campaigns.
