My Life in A Harem




Jillian Lauren tells us a story about her experience spending 18 months in the harem of the Prince of Brunei.  She reads an excerpt from her book, "Some Girls: My Life in A Harem." 

This was recorded at Fresh Starts and New Mistakes, a literary event put on by The Rumpus on May 10, 2010.

Whoa. This is really an explicit view into a life that we don't really imagine still exists. Blatant sexism, but this is reality.
