(Un)Holy Selves - Muslim Women Writers 


Who is a "Muslim" woman? Newspapers, magazines, politicians, clergymen, imams, men, women, east/west all paint various pictures. Most of the time those pictures fit into one frame: oppressed, submissive, and asexual--a disembodied wrapped up cloth. How are (Muslim) women organized and working towards peace? Join community activists, artists, journalists, and teachers who struggle yet dream in order to forge creative, constructive means of shaping the multiple selves and the various worlds inhabited in this time of war and hunger.
