Professor Lila Abu-Lughod, professor of anthropology and gender studies at Columbia University, reflects on the unanticipated passionate and polarized responses to her attempt to intervene in debates about Muslim women and their rights, through her book, Do Muslim Women Need Saving? According to Abu-Lughod, the work was received unevenly by her diverse audience, with responses ranging from near-silence from her target public, to discomfiting anger from a Palestinian hip hop group, to touching personal affirmations from marginalized Muslim women in the West.
