New Muslim(ah) Walking Around was original created in 2010 as a response to the many challenges experienced by women converts to Islam within their own communities and outside of them. This blog explored Islamic feminism and alternative frameworks and lenses to experience Islam. New Muslim(ah) Walking Around has shifted focus to give birth to Identity Crisis. This new approach explores race, intersectionality, religion and identity. It better reflects much of what the world looks like today.
