The Muslimah who Fell to Earth
A collection of twenty-one personal stories told by women from practically all backgrounds and persuasions—devout and not-so devout, professionals and housewives, westernized and traditional, wearing jeans, hijab, or niqab, straight and gay, and originally from Africa, North America, South Asia, the Middle East, and East Asia—revealing in their own ways what it means to them to be a Muslim woman (a “Muslimah”).
What we get is a complex of stories, all challenging conventions and stereotypes, and united by two ideas—Islam (or the Quran) and nationality (Canadian).
