“Muslim women do not need saving” by authors Afrin Firdaus Idris & Heba Ahmad


This is a very creative & cogent discussion about the misogyny & politics of Islamophobia. It’s long but insightful & well worth the read.

It’s a remarkable work actually & extremely valuable to activists for understanding & explaining the complexities & dynamics of Islamophobia which now reigns supreme as the ideological basis of war, genocide, & hate-mongering. Hating on Muslims, especially on Muslim women, portraying Islam as hateful & Muslims as potential terrorists is the battle cry of reactionary politics & must be politically defeated. This article will contribute to that struggle.

The authors are Afrin Firdaus Idris & Heba Ahmad.
