I’m really excited to finally receive a copy of Do Muslim Women Need Saving? by Lila Abu-Lughod. I’m looking forward to read the book because Abu-Lughod is an excellent writer on issues relating to Muslim women.
But I’m also really jazzed because, as you can see above, a piece I wrote for Muslimah Media Watch (MMW) appears in the notes (page 287, to be exact). The idea that Abu-Lughod used something I wrote on a blog I created to critically analyze Muslim women’s media representation is incredibly humbling.
