The media have plenty to say about Muslim women, but the day's headlines rarely reflect the lives of the majority of Muslim women. And even less commonly do we hear the voices of Muslim women themselves. This week, Madison welcomes women writers behind a new collection of essays seeking to fill this void, I Speak For Myself: American Women on Being Muslim.
As always, you can comment before, during or after the show at the Inside Islam blog.
