"As they reflect on transplanting their roots from the diverse Arab Muslim societies to multicultural Canada, Amani Hamdan and her interviewees explain the complexities in acquiring self-realization as autonomous citizens. Challenging Canadian stereotypes while critiquing their Arab Muslim cultural roots, these women are one step away from self-identifying with the Qur'anic gender revolution."
