In Princess Sultana's Daughters, Sasson exposes the stifling and unbearably restrictive lifestyle imposed on these women.

Mayada will never forget her time in Baladiyat, even though she was only there for a month, while the other women had been there for years. The sudden disappearance of a husband, wife, son, daughter, mother or father would cause a loved one to swirl into a nightmare.
They would not know if their loved one was dead, imprisoned, or kidnapped, and they would not know why. They would get no notification whatsoever.
I was completely heartbroken by their suffering and desperation to find their loved one or just know if they were alive. Iraqis lived in constant threat of imprisonment or death if they said or did anything opposing to Saddam.
My heart really went out to these innocent people. This book has opened my eyes to the misery and distress people felt under the reign of this vindictive, evil dictator.
