The Othered Woman: How White Feminism Harms Muslim Women is a contemporary collection of essays that expose the harm which the white feminist movement has inflicted, and continues to inflict, upon Muslim women worldwide.

White liberal feminism has long treated Muslim women as both invisible - by actively excluding them from women’s liberation movements, and hypervisible - with the near-obsession of liberating or ‘saving’ them. Both harm Muslim women. Although more people are waking up to the problematic nature of white feminism, it very rarely stretches to the conversations around just how closely intertwined white feminism and Islamophobia are. 

In The Othered Woman: How White Feminism Harms Muslim Women, Shahed Ezaydi presents an insightful analysis of the various myths that white feminism holds regarding Muslim women, including single-issue oppression, liberation politics, the inherent misogyny of Muslim men, and much more. As part of her investigation, Shahed discovers many Muslim women who are rejecting the notion of a white Western feminism, and instead are fighting for their liberation in their own way.

Enlightening, accessible and absolutely indispensable, Shahed's debut book is a necessary read, offering a nuanced perspective to the ongoing discourse on intersectional women's rights.
