Min Fami

Arab Feminist Reflections on Identity, Space and Resistance


“Min Fami continues a powerful tradition of Arab women’s writings that draw inspiration from feminist, critical race, and anti-colonial theories and practices. ” –Dana M. Olwan, Syracuse University

Min Fami is an anthology that cradles the thoughts of Arab feminists, articulated through personal narratives, essays, poetry, short stories, and visual art. It is a meeting space where discussions on home(land), exile, feminism, borders, gender and sexual identity, solidarity, language, creative resistance, and (de)colonization are shared, confronted, and subverted. In a world that has increasingly found one-dimensional ways of representing Arab women, this anthology is an alternate space in which we connect on the basis of our shared identities, despite physical, theoretical, and metaphorical distances, to celebrate our multiple voices, honour our ancestry, and build community on our own terms, and in our own voices.
