Mariam Khan: It’s Not About The Burqa

Current Affairs

What does it mean, exactly, to be a Muslim woman in the West today?

According to the media, it’s all about the burqa.

According to Mariam Khan, and the host of Muslim women writers that she has anthologised in this book, there’s a lot more to it.

Come and listen to Mariam as she brings us a wide and diverse range of Muslim women talking frankly about the hijab and wavering faith, love and divorce, feminism, queer identity and sex, and the threats of a disapproving community and a racist country.

Mariam Khan is an intersectional feminist, diversity-in-books pusher and freelance writer.
