Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the author's experience throughout a week that she spent with Hajja, a market woman, in a way of narrating her life in times of change. Like most women, Hajja sells mainly on the official market days: Mondays and Thursdays. Tuesday is just an ordinary day for Hajja. Wednesday is a day of commemorating the day of Faqih Sinin’s death. Friday is a day of prayer, leisure, and social visits. Sunday is a relatively quiet day for Hajja, unless there are people who need her as a midwife.

Keywords: Hajja; market woman
