  • It’s not about the burqa

    Experience the groundbreaking book that is poised to change the conversation around Muslim women and Islamophobia. “It’s Not About the Burqa” is a collection of essays by seventeen Muslim women who are speaking out on a range of issues, from love and divorce to feminism, queer identity, sex, and the challenges of navigating a disapproving community and a racist country.

    These are voices you won’t hear in the mainstream media – women who are British and international, from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. They are frank, funny, angry, and passionate as they declare that it’s time to end the oppression, lazy stereotyping, misogyny, and Islamophobia that Muslim women face.

    If you’re tired of hearing about Muslim women from people who are neither Muslim nor female, this book is for you. It’s time to listen to the voices of Muslim women themselves, and learn what it really means to be a Muslim woman in the West today. Don’t let the media’s obsession with the burqa obscure the real issues – pick up “It’s Not About the Burqa” and hear what Muslim women have to say.
