    schema:description "Muslim Women and White Femininity is a much-needed book at a time where Muslim women are speaking out but also embodying White femininity. This book focuses on how Whiteness travels through Muslim women's bodies who in turn reenact or resist White womanhood. Through three archetypes: The Oppressed, The Advocate, and the Humanitarian Leader, the author aims to demonstrate the necessity of archetypal criticism as a method that can teach the reader or student how to deconstruct dominant discourses in the media. This book aims to address intercultural, gender, intersectional and critical communication courses but is also suited for the general public who wishes to understand the deceptive nature of the media. Thus, at a time where Muslim women are being used as media objects by Western media, this book is crucial in breaking down how readers can begin to uncover dominant ideologies that are carried through and by Muslim women."@en ;
