Caught My Eye: Muslimah Media Watch

Friday, July 1, 2011

Muslimah Media Watch gives a great perspective on voices that are not often allowed to speak in either Western or global media: Muslim women. They bring together broad opinions about representation with very focused stories on the impact of decisions by governing bodies on Muslim women (such as FIFA's treatment of the Iranian womens' soccer team). They represent voices from American patriots and Bangladeshi students alike. This blog gives a broad and informative look at Muslim women, and it is created both by and for them.

Here are three of my favorite posts:
Why Did Tom MacMaster Choose to be “A Gay Girl” Blogging from Damascus?

The Ghettoization of Begumpura Neighborhoods

The Sensational Story That Wasn’t: Reports Of ‘Stoning’ Death Of Ukrainian Girl Turn Out To Be False
