Taking one of the most politicised words associated with Muslim women and Islamophobia, It’s Not About the Burqa presents voices unrepresented in the national news. Muslim women speak frankly about the hijab, wavering faith, love, feminism, queer identity and the twin threats of a disapproving community and a racist country. Mariam Khan, editor of this landmark anthology, and contributor Afshan D’Souza-Lodhi discuss what it means to be a Muslim woman in the West.

In conversation with Kaltum Rivers, Councillor for Sheffield City Council and PhD student at the University of Sheffield.
