Description
Summary:It's Not About the Burqa is the brainchild of Mariam Khan, a twenty-four-year-old activist determined to create a new narrative where Muslim women write about their lives outside the parameters of the expectations projected on them. The book will take back the narrative around Muslim women: here Muslim women will speak for themselves, be they feminist, queer, wear the hijab, believe one must be Muslim in culture as well as in faith, or whether they're standing up to speak about what education, power and feminism mean for Muslim women. It's Not About the Burqa doesn't claim to speak for a faith or a group of people, but it does present us with a varied series of passionate, female voices - exactly the voices we need to be hearing
