Overall, a strong though academic look at Muslim resistance through a lens of gender, faith, and sexuality. I found most of it fascinating and well written. However it suffers from the same problem as many anthologies - inconsistency.

Some of the pieces are great and thought provoking, some are just ok, and some are not good. This is a very multi-disciplinary collection, collecting personal stories, poems, art, interviews, and some more scholarly articles. I've read other feminist and Muslim ant
i connected very well with the short stories. i had a hard time with the poetry because i never really understood how to read poetry properly. if there is a way to read poetry that is. the art was great in this book but i wish it was colored and bigger. definitely a book i'd pick up again, especially all the poetry to read again.
This is a great anthology that has a lot to offer. If you want to read poems, essays, letters, and interviews with and by Arab and Arab American women, totally read this because it'll teach you a lot. It's enjoyable even with touchy subjects.
