520    In 2016, Mariam Khan read that David Cameron had linked 
       the radicalization of Muslim men to the `traditional 
       submissiveness' of Muslim women. Mariam felt pretty sure 
       she didn't know a single Muslim woman who would describe 
       herself that way. Why was she hearing about Muslim women 
       from people who were neither Muslim, nor female? Years 
       later the state of the national discourse has deteriorated
       even further, and Muslim women's voices are still pushed 
       to the fringes - the figures leading the discussion are 
       white and male. Taking one of the most politicized and 
       misused words associated with Muslim women and 
       Islamophobia, It's Not About the Burqa is poised to change
       all that. Here are voices you won't see represented in the
       national news headlines: seventeen Muslim women speaking 
       frankly about the hijab and wavering faith, about love and
       divorce, about feminism, queer identity, sex, and the twin
       threats of a disapproving community and a racist country. 
       With a mix of British and international women writers, 
       from activist Mona Eltahawy's definition of a revolution 
       to journalist and broadcaster Saima Mir telling the story 
       of her experience of arranged marriage, from author Sufiya
       Ahmed on her Islamic feminist icon to playwright Afshan 
       D'souza-Lodhi's moving piece about her relationship with 
       her hijab, these essays are funny, warm, sometimes sad, 
       and often angry, and each of them is a passionate 
       declaration calling time on the oppression, the lazy 
       stereotyping, the misogyny and the Islamophobia. What does
       it mean, exactly, to be a Muslim woman in the West today? 
       According to the media, it's all about the burqa. Here's 
       what it's really about.
