Abstract: Iral Al-Tahawy is Fatima in the tent, and Malika Moghaddam is Sultana in the forbidden, and both of them sought to try to plan a different life by educating women. And they began writing about themselves in different ways” (Jabaili, 2015, p. 81) and they appealed for progress, the achievement of self-authority, the separation between the freedom of the self and the entity, and the authority of customs and traditions.

The student of female writings notices the diversity of their topics, especially topics of great importance that varied between what is subjective, social and intellectual, such as issues pertaining to science, which reflect women’s right to the correct employment of this blessing, which is the blessing of knowledge and research, issues of progress and openness to the other, and the achievement of freedom of being Women in the first place, along with issues of divorce, ignorance, exploitation of women, obliteration of their femininity, or fueling and suppressing them. Such as the femininity of the female desert, which is the second focal point after the desert axis. In this research paper, we will raise discussion about some essential points, such as the difference that female writing makes with regard to the subject of the desert. Then what does the desert represent for the female? What are the basic premises adopted by each of the two writers in their perception of the subject of the desert.
