The story of Princess Sultan is true. The words are the authors’, but the story is princesses’. The shocking human tragedies described in this book are factual.

0In a country still ruled by kings, she is a princess. The men of her country hold firmly patriarchal laws. The Saudi Arabian male’s honor rests on the honor of women, and therefore the man must impose his authority on and control of a woman’s sexuality or whether she is faced with public disgrace.

Sultana tells of her life in The Al S’ud Family: appalling oppressions, everyday occurrences that in any other culture would be seen as shocking human rights violations.
