Muslim women are not monolithic…

Please have a look at this voice, that should be heard by everyone, who’d like to broaden their horizons in terms of what a Muslim woman could be like, my journey with sexuality.

This blog is full of articles, that show, that Muslim women are not a homogenous group. They are different and not only defined through what is “on their heads and between their legs” (Mona Eltahawy).

Too long they’ve been othered and judged by all kinds of people, without being heard or even given the opportunity to tell it, how it is, from their stance.

Other examples in the US, who are regularly seen in media now: Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. They are the first Muslim women to be elected to Congress. One doesn’t wear the hijab, the latter does. What does this mean? Muslim women are not a homogenous group. They are not clones of each other. It’s time, that we embrace this truth. It’s time that we are aware.

Please read Beyond The Hijab, if you’d like to get a realer representation of Muslim women in Singapore. Yes, this blog only covers one country!
