    1. I have to put this on hold after taking 3 months to get through the non-fiction section. I want to finish it some day but I've renewed it too many times at the library and it must be returned (last week).My take so far, it would be better if they had cut some of the essays.

    2.

I did not agree with all the opinions/interp [...]

    4. Terrific anthology. I hope that anyone who has questions about the status of women in Muslim culture reads this book, and, as the title says, has their stereotypes shattered. One piece that discussed postcolonialism was pretty inaccessible for someone like me who knows little on the subject, but the rest of the book is fantastic.
