BIRTH DATA: 27 October 1931, 04:00 (4AM) EET (-2), Banha, Egypt (30n28, 31e11). ASC: 5 Libra. RR: A (from memory). SOURCE: Sy Scholfield cites her retelling of her grandmother's account of her birth in "A Daughter of Isis: The Autobiography of Nawal El Saadawi" by Nawal El Saadawi (Spinifex, 2000), pp. 18-20: "With the first light of dawn creeping through the night of that month of October, before the sun came up ... with the last stroke of four dropping like a dying gasp from the ancient clock on the wall, rose a cry ... of a woman in labour which went through the night just once. Then there was a long heavy silence, as though both the woman and the child had died. ... after that one and only shriek ... the dark obstinate head thrust out slowly ... [and the baby went] out into the world as quickly as it could."
