Abstract

What remains today of the Arabian Nights? What remains of Sherazade and her sensuality? Or, to put bluntly, is there a topic more taboo than women sexuality in Arab-Muslim culture? Yet, today in France, in Germany and in every Arab-Muslim country women still struggle for their freedom and sometimes have to put themselves in danger in order to have « the right to have control over their own body ».
