From modern pop culture to anti-Blackness, faith and family, politics,
education, creativity and working life; this anthology gives visibly
Muslim women a space to speak. SPOILER ALERT: We won't be answering the
usual questions! Perceived as the visual representation of Islam,
hijab-wearing Muslim women are nevertheless rarely afforded a platform
on their own terms. Harangued by awkward questions, radical commentators
sensationalising our existence, non-Muslims and non-hijabis making
assumptions, men speaking on our behalf, or stereotypical norms being
perpetuated by the same old faces, hijabis are tired.
Cut from the Same Cloth? seeks to tip the balance back in our favour. Here, twenty-one women of all ages and races look beyond the tired tropes, exploring the breadth of our experience and spirituality. It's time we, as a society, stop with the hijab-splaining and make space for the women who know.
