    THIS BOOK Holy shit To be completely honest, even as a Palestinian Muslim who has spent her entire life unapologetically refusing to abide by patriarchal norms, the concept of this book scared me So honest and raw, but so public Muslims all POC know too well that you don t air your dirty laundry You don t talk about all your shit in front of outsiders Even if it comes at the expense of your community s advancement, you deny that there are any deeply rooted problems, for fear of THIS BOOK Holy shit To be completely honest, even as a Palestinian Muslim who has spent her entire life unapologetically refusing to abide by patriarchal norms, the concept of this book scared me So honest and raw, but so public Muslims all POC know too well that you don t air your dirty laundry You don t talk about all your shit in front of outsiders Even if it comes at the expense of your community s advancement, you deny that there are any deeply rooted problems, for fear of confirming stereotypes in all of their false simplicity and orientalism You deny it for fear of contributing to your community s otherness, or strengthening the claim that whiteness has in saving you and invading your lands But this book is brilliant in that it is not centered around whiteness Rather, It is a painfully accurate description of the conditions too many of us know and live with but so powerfully contextualized The story follows the lives of 3 generations of Palestinian wome...

    This Book is No Literary Masterpiece A Woman Is No Man definitely did not come close to meeting my expectations While the subject matter is indeed worthy the oppression of women in the Arab culture and the story full of potential the voiced experiences of three generations of Palestinian women I feel I have just read something of sub par quality.From the first chapter, I could not shed the impression that I was reading a m...

    The plot isn t creative and the writing dexterity is limited, but it gives voice to a largely voiceless population Arab women so rarely show up in literature that hearing a story any story from their perspective feels fresh and exciting, even when the general premise is tired.I can appreciate, too, that this isn t just about Arab women, it also seems to be written directly for them One of the leads is forced to sneak around to read books because it isn t culturally appropriate She laments The plot isn t creative and the writing dexterity is limited, but it gives voice to a largely voiceless population Arab women so rarely show up in literature that hearing a story any story from their perspective feels fresh and exciting, even when the general premise is tired.I can appreciate, too, that this isn t ju...

    Find all of my reviews at Let me begin by saying that after my last experience with an internet famous author term used as loosely as possible since she didn t even write the thing, but failed to give credit where credit was due until being called out about it , there is zero chance I would have ever read this Unfortunately, I m ...

    This is one of those stories that will dig in deep and make you want to scream at these cultures that undervalue women We know we are different physically but that s where it stops.Putting my anger aside, this is a beautifully written story of 2 Women who have migrated to America from Palestine and a daughter born in America.The struggle of upholding traditional customs while assimilating into a new culture.Rum captures voices of traditions, secrets and shame Loneliness and depression She This is one of those stori...
