It's Not About the Burqa: Muslim Women on Faith, Feminism, Sexuality and Race

Thursday 21st February 2019 6:30pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

**This event is SOLD OUT**

 

In 2016 Mariam Khan read that David Cameron had linked the radicalisation of Muslim men to the “general submissiveness” of Muslim women—but Mariam was pretty sure she didn’t know a single Muslim woman who would describe herself this way.

Here are the voices you won’t see represented in the national news headlines: Muslim women speaking frankly about the hijab and wavering faith, about love and divorce, feminism, queer identity, sex, and the twin threats of a disapproving community and a racist country.

What does it mean to be a Muslim woman in the West today? According the media, it’s all about the burqa. To launch this exceptional collection Editor Mariam Khan will be joined on a panel by contributors Jamilla Hekmoun, Salma El-Wardany, Aina Khan, Raifa Rafiq and Coco Khan with readings from contributors Amna Saleem, Sufiya Ahmed and Afshan D’souza-Lodhi.
