Hanifa Deen travelled through Bangladesh and Pakistan to discover the many faces of Muslim women today, meeting and talking to mavericks, feminists and starry-eyed foreign wives; actresses and socialites; urban professionals and rural women who had never left their village. With humour, compassion and insight, Deen relates stories of their fight against opression, of the friendship of women, of the joys and frustrations of the extended family, of the unwritten laws that govern women's lives and the violence that can threaten them.
