    In this exclusive event, writer, poet and activist, Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan launches her new book, Tangled in Terror: Uprooting Islamophobia.

    Islamophobia is everywhere. It is a narrative and history woven so deeply into our everyday lives that we don't even notice it.

    Behind the scenes it affects the most vulnerable, at the border and in prisons.

    Despite this, the conversation about Islamophobia is relegated to microaggressions and slurs.

    Tangled in Terror shows that until the most marginalised Muslims are safe, nobody is safe.

    Manzoor-Khan brings this groundbreaking book to life for the first time, revealing and exploring the ways that Muslim women are specifically violated through Islamophobic focus on what they wear, the languages they speak, the ways they raise children and more.

    She discusses state-led attempts to regulate and co-opt Muslim women's identities to surveil and discipline Muslims more broadly, damaging all of us in the process.

    If you care about equality and intersectionality, this event is for you. Everyone is welcome.

    Tangled in Terror: Uprooting Islamophobia is part of the Outspoken series published by Pluto.

    Part of WOW – Women of the World festival.
