Ameer Makhoul

This op-ed was published in al-Ahram, and is written by a woman I work with about her husband.

The story is a big deal here, but that’s how this works: no one on the other side of the pond knows, really, about these things. Look it up.

Spoiler alert: it made me cry.

  1. I didn’t say enough. This is heartbreaking… and wrong. It is easy to imagine myself in her shoes—a husband, two daughters, powerlessness, fighting against a system in which one is not valued/has not power. Infuriating!
