Muslim Women In 2015: 'Islamic State Bitches' Or Great British Bakers
Shelina Janmohamed

Being a Muslim woman in 2015 is full of conflict. You can face fierce hatred, especially if you wear a hijab - but you’re still seen as oppressed by your gender. As a mother, you’re responsible for standing up to radicalisation in the community, yet when women become involved in terrorism themselves? It’s deeply shocking. We expect Muslim women to be too submissive to actively wage terror.
