This show will feature educator, Dr.Aisha El-Amin, who has embarked upon a project to address the challenges of combating the stereotypical images of Muslim women in today's society. She chose to do this by writing a children's book with her three young daughters. They will explore what it means to be a Muslim woman by including in the book statements from Muslim women themselves.  What they hope this will be is a introspective and revelatory look at a misunderstood and powerful force in society. 

Dr. El-Amin will be joined on the show by her three daughters, Yaminah, Zahirrah, and Zakiyyah.
