Diary of a Mad Arabian Woman|Tamadher al Fahal, Bahrain

Tamadher explains, “I was motivated to write this zine because I believe Muslim women are facing many issues in their everyday lives, from many parties. We experience the pressure of being an independent individual with a successful career, yet maintaining the principles of Islam and respecting the religion we believe in. On the other hand, there is the pressure of other cultures and the world as a whole that cast a generally wrong impression and—sometimes false images—about Muslim women. Trying to prove the opposite in both directions is challenging—but not impossible.” You can see her zine here. It is a heart-felt and passionate collage and sketch-book, a good glimpse into the minds of many frustrated women.
