Booklet about growing up as a Muslim woman. Especially the vale seemed a major problem for her. She sees it as a major force in oppressing women. Unfortunately I wasn’t convinced by her, as she seems to be unable to separate personal experience from facts. Opinion from open discussion. I was disappointed after reading it. The subject interests me, but to me this book/pamphlet doesn’t help the discussion at all. Which is a shame, as she could have been a good source for information, as a Muslima in a western country.
