Reel Muslim Women: The Depiction of Muslim Women on Film and TV Institutional Repository Document uri icon

abstract

  • This poster explores the depiction of Muslim women in film and on television. Hollywood has often portrayed Muslim women as angry, insensitive mothers, sisters, and daughters in dramas such as The Bodyguard and American Sniper to what we see now as much more representations of more empowered, intelligent, and independent roles in such shows as Greys Anatomy and Mooz-Lum, and American Crime.
