Hijab and Red Lipstick Summary

Hijab and Red Lipstick by Yousra Imran

You cannot do anything in this country without my permission. Being a teenager isn't easy. And it doesn't help when you have a mega strict Egyptian dad who tells you that everything is haram a.k.a. forbidden. All Sara wants to do is experiment with makeup and read fashion magazines, but her dad's conservative interpretation of Islam makes it impossible. Things get even harder when her dad lands himself a job in the Arabian Gulf and moves Sara and her family to a country where the patriarchy rules supreme. In a country where you have to have your father's permission for everything, every door feels like it is being closed on Sara's future. Can Sara find her voice again? Will she ever be free?
