In the coroporate media we usually hear the voices of supposedly Muslim women acting as renegrades from the dictates of Islamic teachings. Women who frown the hijab; women who engage in behavior antithetical to Islamic views about chastity; women who want to essentially emulate the male role. But in this episode, your host, Syed Saboor, and his co-host, Anisa Abd El Fattah, will examine "sober" voices of women in the Islamic faith, embodying all their feminine qualities, but remaining strong, educated females.
