On Being an American Muslim Woman... - One beautiful summer morning in Manhattan I walked into McNally Robinson Café to meet with an orthodox Jewish author who was writing a book about women who are unhappy with their religion. Why did she want to interview me, I thought to myself as I ordered a pot of tea? It turns out I had been recommended to her as someone who could provide a positive perspective on Islam. The interview progressed and throughout I noticed that the author seemed absolutely mystified by the Islam that I was speaking of. I suppose I should not have been surprised – all one has to do is turn on the television and at once you are bombarded by images of women covered in black burkas and angry bearded men burning flags. These emblematic images are representative of the Islam that many Americans see, a religion ruled by intolerance, polarity rather than pluralism, and oppression, especially of women.
