This year marked the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers in New York. In the following years many have argued (and continue to do so) that these attacks were spurred by a growing and unchecked global Muslim fundamentalist movement. How has this changed the way the North American public looks at Islam and in particular Muslim women?

Farrah Khan of AQSAzine speaks with Ellie about the policing of Muslim women’s clothes to the plurality of Islam. AQSAzine is a Toronto-based arts collective created in 2007 by and for young women and trans people who self-identify as Muslim.

Featuring spoken word from Fayza Bundalli, a queer femme poet living in San Francisco.

This show was produced for and aired as part of Pacifica Radio’s 9/11 special.
