Sex, Love, & Feminism, in the Muslim Women's World
Romance, dating, sex, and—Muslim women talking for themselves! Talk about taboos broken and stereotypes torpedoed.
This book has made a huge impression everywhere it's been discussed-- and there's not a book critic in America who hasn't weighed in. The title sounds titillating, but these real-life stories are frank, earnest, and real.
Nura Maznavi and Ayesha Mattu made fantastic selections, there's not one repitition or predictable exposition.
