Iraqi star charges Economist ‘to defend Arab women rights’ after magazine used her photo

(MENAFN) An Iraqi star, which picture was used by The Economist to illustrate a story around fatness in the Arab world, disapproved discriminations of Arab women rights by the West.

Enas Taleb, who is 42 years old, has charged the British weekly newspaper for disrespecting her privacy after using her picture without consent in an article around why women are “fatter” than men in the Arab nations.

Taleb informed Anadolu Agency in an exclusive meeting that “The magazine has insulted all Arab women after using my picture in an article about obesity and overweight in the Arab world.”

"I’m against valuing a woman based on the shape of her body,” she stated.

She went further on, "I felt offended when I saw my picture in the article. The magazine has used my photo in an offensive context, I’m an artist and have my social status. The newspaper did not respect my status among fans.”
