Description

The Useless Sex is a report of women from different countries of the world. Book lovers and the press are familiar with the name of Oriana Fallaci and her writing style. The type of documentary writing and fluent and appropriate translation of the book allows the reader to establish a good relationship with the weaker sex.

The female ancestor has many complexities. Culture, customs, and historical, political, and social backgrounds have always influenced the presence of women in society. When women write about women, they are aware of these complexities and can reflect on their issues more accurately. Issues that only change in appearance as countries move forward, and the roots and origins of many of them remain in place.
The story of poor sex writing begins in the summer when the editor of the newspaper where Fallaci worked was asked: “Are you ready to go on a trip around the world and report on the status of women in several Eastern countries?” Ready to travel to remote and marginalized areas, he agreed, and in the winter of the same year began his world-wide journey from Pakistan.

Fallaci travels from Pakistan to India, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Japan, and Hawaii, and eventually to the United States. Contrary to popular belief, the book’s name has nothing to do with feminist statements and only examines the situation of a group of women in the world who are known as the second sex in their society.

In the book The Weak Sex, in addition to magnifying the lives of women in these countries, Fallaci also pays attention to women’s suffering, misconceptions, and rotten and woven traditions in these societies. The interesting thing about this book is that these Fallaci observations are not limited to underdeveloped countries, and in countries like Japan and the United States, there are many traditions and beliefs that bother women.
Who is the author of the The Useless Sex?

Oriana Fallaci is one of the most marginalized writers in the contemporary world. His life was always tied to war, politics, and gender, racial, and religious discrimination. He was born in Florence in 1929 at the height of Mussolini’s power. Few thought that year that this skinny little girl would become one of Italy’s most recognizable women thirty years later.

He was only nine years old when World War II broke out. At the same young age, he entered the adult world against his will. He helped his father, who was active on Mussolini’s opposition, and watched closely the vices of politicians and the violent figure behind the scenes of the war. His father hated Mussolini and joined the Italian underground resistance movement.
Although Fallaci later wrote that the two sides of the war were not much different, he joined the movement with his father and went through horrific experiences until the end of the war. Courage, daring, and writing ability made Fallach, a 20-year-old journalist, a prominent figure in the international community. “I have been struggling with pain and death since I was nine years old,” Fallaci says of this period of his professional life. “In Vietnam, Lebanon, Mexico, Bolivia or anywhere.” He was always in the middle of the field at a time when the world was experiencing bloody wars and dark conflicts. Sometimes he was in Vietnam and wrote The Book of Life, War and Nothing Else. Sometimes he interviewed the most influential politicians of the century such as “Imam Khomeini”, “Mohammad Reza Pahlavi”, “Muammar Gaddafi”, “Ariel Sharon”, “Indiria Gandhi”, “Yasser Arafat”, “King Hussein” and other prominent politicians in the world.

Fallaci published a collection of these interviews in the book “Interview with History” and became more famous than ever. It was around this time that Oriana Fallaci married a Greek revolutionary named Alexander Panagoulis and, after his assassination in 1976, wrote a book about him called A Man. Fallaci’s most famous book is A Letter to a Child Who Was Never Born. The book, which many critics say is a cry for anger at what has befallen human beings, also speaks of the love of motherhood, feelings of joy, fear, kindness, despair, anger, hope, depression and anxiety.
Fallaci’s books and philanthropic work have won him numerous awards, including the Annie Taylor Prize, the Berlusconi Gold Medal for Cultural Effort, and the Ambergnodro Prize. Fallaci was also nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature, but the award went to another author.

Fallaci was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and decided to distance himself from the world of writing and take a break. “I have been dying every day since 1992, when I underwent surgery to cure breast cancer,” he said in an interview. His rest lasted only nine years.

After the bloody attacks of 9/11, he could not hide his anger and disgust and published the book “Anger and Pride”. Fallaci did not believe in any religion. But before 9/11, there was no strong reaction to religions and their followers. In his latest book, he openly attacked Muslims and strongly condemned Islamic terrorism. The book angered European Muslims, and he traveled under police protection to avoid possible threats. Undoubtedly, Oriana Fallaci was one of the most well-known anti-war men of the present century, but with the publication of each of her books, riots broke out somewhere in the world.
He had a restless and sad spirit, and perhaps the best evidence of this can be found in excerpts from one of his last books: “The more human we are, the deeper the wounds will be.” The more we love, the more we will grieve. We will part more and our loneliness will increase. We may remember the memories of some of those wounds forever, but the suffering of the story is different. It penetrates to the depths of human existence and we live with them every day. “It’s like being human.” Fallaci, an Italian writer, died in the fall of 2006 in his native Florence, Italy.

In a part of the book, we read about the The Useless Sex
Pakistan – this piece of land where no romantic marriage takes place and no girl is left without a husband and the book is full of emotions – in a part of a large area where 600 million people live. Half of this population is adulterers and in most countries of this region adulterers live in a long hijab called a chador. The chador allows them to hide from head to toe from any illegitimate man – who is not their own husband or son. Adulterers look at the sky, the sun, and others through the window above this veil. Like someone jumping out of a window!

The realm of Islam is very large and has many countries in it, of which Pakistan is a small point. So one can not judge the situation of Muslim adultery just by looking at the situation of Karachi adultery. For example, their situation is better in Iran and much, much worse in Saudi Arabia. There is still something called a harem there. The adulterers of the shrine have no knowledge of what is happening behind the walls of the shrine, and when they step there they know that they will never go out again.

Saudi adultery is such an unhealthy creature that even their names are not written in the registry office. Sometimes only their last name appears on their ID card. It is forbidden to take pictures of them, let alone a woman who knows the meaning of a strange word that is loved in other parts of the world. Man, woman god and owner of the whole universe.
In some countries, men who dare to touch a woman are severely punished, and in some countries there is no prison sentence for a man who rapes a woman! This is how the executioner carries out a more severe punishment! That is, with a whip, he hits one of the culprits in the back of the offender, which keeps him from being a man forever. It can be said that respecting adultery is apparently high and practically a formality.

Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci owes her fame to her famous interviews with political leaders in various countries. At the suggestion of the editor of the newspaper in which she worked, she traveled to Eastern countries to report on the living conditions of women in this part of the world. “My intention was just to go a relatively long way and be able to study the possible situations for a woman that result from women being women or social taboos,” she said.
According to Oriana Fallaci, the reports she presents in the book Gender Sex are the result of her observations of the lives of women in these countries and, of course, interviews and meetings with prominent and active women in each country to discuss women’s issues in the region.

Differences in customs and diversity in the way women live in each of these countries are most evident; From the existence of patriarchal tribes in Kuala Lumpur to the restrictions and problems of Pakistani women in marriage. The simple expression of the author in the narration of what he has seen and heard has taken the book away from the dry format of the report, and it seems that this is the reason for its influence and popularity among the books in the field of women.
