about this item

As someone who has a foot in both the Western and Arabic worlds, Amal set out to explore the lives of Arab women, in Australia and the Middle East, traveling to the region and interviewing more than 60 women about feminism, intimacy, love, sex and shame, trauma, war, religion, and culture. Beyond Veiled Clichés explores the similarities and differences experienced by these women in their daily lives—work, relationships, home and family life, friendships, the communities they live in, and more. Arab-Australian women are at the intersection—between Western ideals and Arab tradition. It can get messy, but there is also great beauty in the layers. In a time of racial tension and rising global fear around terrorism, there is a renewed fear of "the other." At its heart this fascinating booknormalizes people and their experiences. The breadth, variety, and beauty of what Amal has discovered will enthrall and surprise you.
