US Feminists’ Omission of Arab American Women Explained
Arab American women are highly educated, have higher labor force participation rates than most Americans, earn higher incomes than average Americans, and are well represented in every professional sector, yet their collective contribution to community and country are glossed over and unappreciated. This glaring omission is attributed to deeply embedded prejudice that taints all Arab Americans, an outmoded narrow US racial construct of group identity that Arab American women transcend, and their shared core belief that wars and occupation harms the two worlds’ they love.
