1. Making Dumplings (Ching-In)

We began our relationship by eating together.

Cassie courted me by offering to pick up extra goat milk from the raw milk farm. I made avocado and berry smoothies out of the produce I received as part of a year-round produce-buying cooperative my housing co-op participated in. She surprised me with homemade pie. Eventually, we were making lettuce wraps and vegetable stir-fry together a few times a week.

A noted champion of women’s rights and outspoken opponent of genital mutilation, Ali is no stranger to controversy. Her forceful comments hurled at Islam have earned her plenty of scrutiny. Is her hostility toward the largest religion in the world justifiable? Other advocates, such as writer Aaminah “Jay” Khan, don’t find a contradiction in the label Feminist Muslim.
