Muslim Women and White Femininity: Reenactment and Resistance is a much-needed book in a time when Muslim women are speaking out but also embodying White femininity. This book focuses on how Whiteness travels through Muslim women's bodies, who in turn reenact or resist White womanhood, by examining three relevant archetypes: the Oppressed, the Advocate, and the Humanitarian Leader. The author aims to demonstrate the necessity of archetypal criticism as a method that can teach the reader or student how to deconstruct dominant discourses in the media. This book aims to address intercultural, gender, intersectional and critical communication courses but is also suited for those in the general public who wish to understand the deceptive nature of the media. Thus, at a time where Muslim women are being used as media objects by Western media, this book is crucial in analyzing how readers can begin to uncover dominant ideologies that are carried through and by Muslim women.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In her provocative book Muslim Women and White Femininity: Reenactment and Resistance, Haneen Ghabra urges us to rethink the way women of color including Muslim women perform and embody white femininity. Her refreshing text eloquently sheds light on hegemonic constructs in her attempt to move toward what she critically defines as intersectional feminist ethics." -Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, Professor, Faculty of Law-Institute of Criminology and the School of Social Work and Public Welfare at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
"This is an insightful, eclectic look at the various ways in which Muslim Women have dealt with the hegemonic power of White femininity. Professor Ghabra uses a series of case studies to illustrate how Muslim women can, at times, deploy their subject positionalities to resistant, diverse forms of patriarchy and domestication." -Marouf A. Hasian Jr., Professor of Communication Studies, University of Utah
"This book is a timely and important contribution to the emerging body of scholarship on Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) communication studies. Theoretically grounded and methodologically rich, Ghabra provides a complex analysis of a range of popular cultural texts about Muslim women and offers an intersectional feminist ethic that is full of resistive potential and collective hope. I highly recommend it." -Gust Yep, Professor of Communication Studies, San Francisco State University
