Veiled Voices: Muhajabat in Secular Schools is based on ethnographic research that examines, questions, and dispels assumptions regarding American Muslim females that wear the Islamic headscarf (hijab) and attend secular schools. Prior to sharing the voice of the six females focused upon in this study, Dr. Jawairriya Abdallah-Shahid provides a thorough explanation of what Islam, Sunnah, and Shariah teach regarding hijab. What is unique about this work is the thorough explanation provided to readers regarding Islam’s teachings pertaining to hijab. This allows readers to gain insight and understanding not usually provided when this subject is discussed. The purpose of sharing Islam’s hijab perspective is to introduce the reader to the many variables and possibilities that encompasses why some Muslim females veil. An analysis of the social and psychological effects of difference forces readers to confront their own biases and misunderstandings regarding Muslim females that wear hijab and provides an opportunity for the reexamination of these views after reading and understanding the in depth information provided. The challenges, discrimination, joys, and tribulations faced by the muhajabat are shared by them and displays an array of experiences that are not homogeneous. The commonality of their experiences is rooted in their ability to continue in their efforts to complete their education. The final chapter makes an important suggestion regarding society’s outlook regarding Muslim females that wear hijab and offers relevant research findings pertaining to muhajabat.

Choc des cultures entre le Moyen-Orient et l'Amérique L’odyssée de la famille Ward en Iran à la recherche d’un être cher ressemble à un rêve éveillé. Avec pour seuls indices une photo jaunie, un nom propre et le nom d’un village déformé par le temps, ce petit groupe traverse un pays, une culture, une histoire que d’aucuns voudraient opposer au reste du monde. Chemin faisant, ces Américains singuliers composent une ode unique à la rencontre des cultures. Une épopée familiale au suspense haletant CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE - "Un portrait merveilleusement nuancé de l’Iran" (Francine Prose, Elle US) - "Stupéfiant et profondément bouleversant" (The Washington Post) - "Un pélerinage palpitant" (The New Yorker) - "À la recherche de la grâce" (Esquire) - "Une ode inattendue à l’Iran" (The New York Times Book review) - "À la recherche d’Hassan devrait être une lecture obligatoire pour tous les responsables de la politique étrangère américaine" (Bookpage) - "Le plus beau livre de voyage en Orient depuis les récits de Richard Burton et de Lawrence d’Arabie." (Benjamin Berton, EXTRAIT Je me rappelle une soirée animée, il y a longtemps. Des feux rougeoient par-delà les toits de la ville. Des pétards qui éclatent rompent le silence du printemps. Nous sommes en mars 1963, le dernier mardi avant Noruz, le Nouvel An iranien. Des ruisseaux de neige fondue dévalent les ravins de montagne. Des jacinthes percent l’argile humide. Des platanes en bourgeons saluent la saison douce. Depuis deux mille cinq cents ans, à la même époque, les astronomes iraniens scrutent les cieux, à la recherche du signe. Quand le soleil traverse l’équateur, une nouvelle année commence, annonçant le premier jour du printemps. Chaharshanbe souri, la fête zoroastrienne du feu, résonne de roulements de tambours et de mélopées qui durent toute la nuit. Des feuilles, des brindilles et des branches cassées s’entassent le long de la rue. Le clair de lune coule sur les montagnes couronnées de neige. Une brise souffle dans notre jardin persan. Hassan nous prépare pour la cérémonie. Il brosse nos cheveux en arrière en récitant des expressions en farsi. Ce soir, dit-il, nous sauterons par-dessus les feux de joie.

Puis le long voyage jusqu'à la ville. Un travail l'attend, elle est en âge d'aider sa famille maintenant ! Mais où sont les toits couverts d'or ? Et quelle est cette " maison du bonheur " où elle atterrit ? La répugnante Mumtaz, patronne des lieux, lui fera vite comprendre de quel enfer elle est maintenant prisonnière... Patricia McCormick ne pouvait raconter avec plus de délicatesse ce monde aussi inimaginable que réel du commerce sexuel des enfants et le triomphe d'une petite fille en perdition. Parce que rien n'est pire que le silence face à l'inacceptable et qu'il faut savoir pour se révolter, ce livre devait exister.
