"Muslim women are a hot topic. They are spoken for and about constantly in mainstream media but are rarely permitted to speak for themselves, despite this being the very accusation levelled against Islam and Muslim societies. If and when Muslim women are given a platform to speak for themselves, their choices are often labelled as the product of brainwashing or patriarchal oppression, even when explicitly and repeatedly told otherwise."
