🚨 🚨 🚨 My debut @thenewarab  🚨🚨🚨 I wrote about β€˜Our Women On The Ground: Arab Women Reporting from the Arab World ’, the first anthology of its kind from 19 Arab women journalists re-shaping not just how we perceive the region but the women within it πŸ“š Chatted all things the role of Western media in contributing to the region’s global image as synonymous with violence and oppression, what it means to be an Arab woman journalist risking her life to report on the frontlines and why they deserve identical attention as their oft-lauded Western counterparts ✏️ So many highlights in @owotg  inc @donnaabunasr β€˜s beaut chapter on the clash between conservatism and the Crown Prince’s reforms, @nour_malas  on the life-changing friendships she forms with refugee families as anti-migrant sentiment rose in Europe to @nadasbakri β€™s deeply affecting essay on the first-hand impact of the Syrian conflict. β€œUltimately, this is a long overdue anthology that immortalises the often thankless work Arab women have done in not just providing much-needed light on their homelands and an often misunderstood region but in challenging preconceptions of Middle Eastern women. As Hankir herself says: β€˜My hope is that readers will come away feeling that the region and its people are far more layered and nuanced than mainstream media might portray.’” @zahrahankir  πŸ’₯πŸ’₯ // Link πŸ‘†πŸ½

NOT MY PM πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ V proud of this piece yet horrified that my decade-long prediction that the man who likened Muslim women’s dress to β€˜letterboxes’ last summer and a long, troubling history of sexist, homophobic and racist rhetoric is moving into No.10. // Back in May, I spoke to 5 Muslims @viceuk  about how they feel about Boris Johnson potentially becoming Prime Minister ✏️ Chatted all things how they feel about anti-Muslim prejudice in the Tory party, whether Boris’ bid for PM sets a dangerous precedent for minority communities and how they feel about the idea of Boris Johnson potentially moving into Number 10 πŸ—³πŸ—³ β€œIf Boris becomes Prime Minister, everything will just become one big bumbling joke. He could end up being like Trump in the US. It will be tragic. Unfortunately, some people are so bored of politics that they see Boris as charming, funny and relatable. He needs to f**k off back to Eton.” @nadtut  πŸ’₯πŸ’₯ // LinkπŸ‘†πŸ½
