"To be a refugee these days means to wake up almost each morning and witness anti-refugee sentiment plastered on the news and social media.

"The night before Radovan Karadzic’s verdict, I lay in bed to the sound of a thunderstorm. Maybe it was the thunderstorm itself or the fact that in the morning his verdict would finally be delivered, but I’d close my eyes and picture myself as the scared little girl I was growing up in Sarajevo..."

"Prophet Muhammed, peace be upon him, was a feminist. That is not a matter of opinion, but rather fact based upon all the information we have available on the Prophet, including both religious and academic text. He valued women, their words, and their work. Sometime over the last 1,400 years we seem to have forgotten his message allowing our communities to become subject to misogyny and patriarchy...."

I grab my coffee, sit down at the table, and open up my social media sites. Staring in front of me, as I scroll down to see what today’s topic of controversy is, are copious amounts of women dissecting the hijab and its meaning. I take a deep sigh and try not to let my anger get the best of me.
