Fatema Mernissi s novel explores the imagery and sexual ideology of harems in both the west and the east Mernissi illustrates the sharp contrast of the western and eastern harems the western harem being one of ideology rather than physical presence while also analyzing the differing sexual attitudes depiction and behaviors of the west and the east Mernissi explains that Muslim harems do not hinge upon excessive sexualization and submission as those harems imagined by the west but rather for the real or imagined Muslim harems cerebral confrontation with women is necessary to achieve orgasm 26 In other words women of the Muslim harems are not subservient sex slaves rather the woman take an active part in the sexual male vs female dichotomy were intelligence is both expected and necessary This of course contrasts the western harem were intelligence is seen as a hindrance to beautyWhere as Mernissi explains Scheherazade commands words not armies to transform her situation the women of the western harem command nothing 51 Western harems lack the cerebral confrontation so present and essential in the Muslim harems leaving behind mindless woman with no cognition or will For the west an intelligent women is not so much damaged goods as mutated to clarify a woman is not damaged by her intelligence unlike for example when losing her virginity but mutated into a creature of thought and there for not a being of beauty In short a woman who dares to be intelligent is punished on the spot She is ugly 91 and as the sole value of a woman lies in her beauty to be an ugly woman is to become useless repulsive untouchable But why is female intelligence so different in the east and westLike ideas of modesty and beauty harems reflect attitudes of female sexuality and dichotomy in the Orient men use space to dominate women but in the Occident men dominate women by unveiling what beauty ought to be And if you don t look like the picture they unveil you are doomed 112 For the Orient it is not the women s sexuality and sensuality that are the sole factors though sexual appeal certainly cannot be denied an large role of feminine beauty rather the ability to use one intelligence to face and solve problems and even challenge their male counterparts adds to a woman s beauty The West on the other hand seems echoes the Khant s philosophy that for a woman to be beautiful she must also be mindless and passive an object rather than a human being By controlling what beauty is defined as men can control what woman can and cannot be If beauty is to be unintelligent and subservient then woman are denied or discouraged from certain subjects and activities eg only boys are good at math Mernissi s novel raises important uestions about the depiction sexuality in harems and the gender dichotomy thus leaving readers to hopefully consider how the effects both the male female dichotomy and sexualization of women shape their lives understanding and society
