"Since #MiddleEastCollective is run by a team of passionate women (i.e. an Egyptian, a Pakistani-American, and two Tennesseans), we decided to throw our inhibitions to the patriarchal wind and make this week Women’s Week over at our corner of the internet.

We will focus on the powerful movements and progressive changes women in the West and the #MiddleEast are developing, which promote tolerance and understanding of Muslim and non-Muslim women of all different shapes, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, and colors."

Thoughts on ‪Adele's black gown from ‪‎Chloé‬ during her performance at ‪Glastonbury‬, "Maybe one day, our grandchildren will feel the urge to express their disappointment that a renowned singer put on a black gown of a particular ‪Egyptian style, while no one felt any need to promulgate that."
