The Egyptian writer Nawal El Saadawi spoke to Wael Fateen about women, globalisation and the Middle East.
How do see you the anti-capitalist movement at the moment?
In Porto Alegre the slogan was 'Another world is possible'. I believe this is true because the majority of the people are now against the system and they are now organised regardless of religion, gender or colour. The movement has a very politicised agenda. This is what I call unveiling the mind against the mainstream media. I was in the US on 11 September, and I could see the role the media played in brainwashing Americans by using the word 'terrorism'.
