I Say Khuda Hafiz to MMW

I’ve been writing for MMW since it’s inception so leaving it was not an easy decision. It was one I struggled with for a long while and eventually decided it was the best course of action for me at this point in time. I may pop up on there every now and then though.

From Bikinis to Hijabs on MMW

This was my latest passionate piece on MMW. The study I critiqued rubbed me the wrong way and being a social psychologist in training I knew I had to take a deeper look at it.

An excerpt:

I am familiar with Dr. Fiske’s work, and I couldn’t help but question whether IslamOnline was misrepresenting the study in an effort to promote the necessity of hijab. As someone doing her Ph.D. in social psychology, I am familiar with how the results of social psychological studies can be manipulated through the use of language in such a way to support an argument one is trying to make and consequently taking the results out of context. And this is what seems to have happened in this IslamOnline article.
