Islamophobia and the Question of Muslim Identity: The Politics of Difference and Solidarity
Introducing a Muslim group in Canada that works to change attitudes toward Islam in their community, this study goes behind the scenes to look at the conflicts and dilemmas within the group itself, which is diverse in its view of the hijab and other practices. The conclusion shows that this team of Muslins has been very successful in developing several educational initiatives because of their own experience in negotiating internal differences in ways that did not fragment the group.
