Reader's Thoughts


Terrific anthology. I hope that anyone who has questions about the status of women in Muslim culture reads this book, and, as the title says, has their stereotypes shattered. One piece that discussed postcolonialism was pretty inaccessible for someone like me who knows little on the subject, but the rest of the book is fantastic.


Yep, you guessed right... I'm in this one too and its a fantastic anthology!


Excellent anthology showcasing the various perspectives of Muslim women.


I have to put this on hold after taking 3 months to get through the non-fiction section. I want to finish it some day but I've renewed it too many times at the library and it must be returned (last week).My take so far, it would be better if they had cut some of the essays. Terrorist Chic and Where is Home were my favorites, the most powerful.

As with all literary anthologies, some of the selections here are subpar, but many of them are excellent. Afzal-Khan has put together a strong collection.
