Why women’s rights are seen as being central to the discourse on Islam? And why are we so fascinated with Muslim women? These are some of the crucial questions Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan invites us to think about in her quest to dismantle oppressive structures in society. Suhaiymah is a writer and spoken word poetry performer. She began running the popular blog www.thebrownhijabi.com three years ago where she has written on topics including race, gender, Islamophobia, intersectional feminism and the decolonising of academia. Her work has been published in TheIndependent and she is a contributor to the Cut From the Same Cloth anthology which will be published in 2018-19. Suhaiymah won second place title in the London Roundhouse Poetry Slam 2017 with her poem, ‘This is Not a Humanising Poem’ which subsequently went viral on the internet. As a History and Postcolonial Studies graduate from Cambridge and SOAS respectively she speaks about her topics of interest and research regarding the construction and criminalisation of South Asian migrants, diasporas and Muslims in Britain. She believes in the liberation of all people from every type of injustice and oppression in this world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
