Salam and apa khabar everybody,
I am now officially part of MMW!
Regular readers may already know me as Cycads and have come across some of my articles here. For those who haven’t spotted a pattern, I write mostly about the struggles of Malaysian Muslim women, but from a feminist perspective. Now that I’ve said the F-word, let me just say that I don’t think it matters whether or not we as Muslim women identify ourselves as feminists, as long as we uphold social and religious standards that do women justice. It’s as simple as that. As a woman from Malaysia living the immigrant experience in the U.K., I can offer in my writings all that I know about the difficulties of being non-male, non-EU native, non-white, and non-Christian in Europe.
Besides being a feminist critic, I enjoy the comforting art of cooking and taking long walks in the sun. Hope you will enjoy reading my articles as much as I enjoy writing them.
