"I Make My Own Choices."

45 minutes

Saima Mir is a powerful writer who uses her personal stories to challenge notions surrounding patriarchy, Islam, and parenting. As a result, she has produced narratives that explain the intersection of identities, religion, and politics.  Her writing simultaneously educates and empowers the communities she is writing for. But even a reader who doesn’t share her background will find something to relate to because Saima writes in a way that draws on the universal themes of what it means to be human. Saadia and Saima talk about her writing, motherhood, how moms are discriminated against in the workplace and how to reclaim agency.
