Culture

Breaking Barriers One Day At A Time

Every other day we hear about someone on the internet publicly talking down one's culture, slut/trans/gay shaming, being racially profiled, being attacked by a police officer and the list goes on. As much of the negative things we hear and see in the world today, believe it or not there are people out there that make those negative things into positive ones.

Freeform introduced a new TV show in July of 2017 called The Bold Type. In the first few episodes it tackles all kinds of issues such as racial profiling, immigration, exploring one's sexuality, love and fashion. It also introduces a Muslim feminist that is also a queer. The Bold Type is about three female friends who all work at a women’s magazine called Scarlet. Nikohl Boosheri who plays Adena is a beautiful feminist photographer that Scarlet is profiling. Adena just so happens to be in a romantic relationship with one of the staffers who is a main character, Aisha Dee who plays Kat.

Adena’s character is much needed in today’s society because Muslims as a whole already get a bad reputation. Adena is breaking barriers and stereotypes and showing Muslim women in an amazingly different light. Queer Muslim women are not rare but it is not everyday you see a badass, queer, Muslim feminist represented on television in a positive way. Adena shows that there is no limit to what a person can be no matter what nationality, race or religion. We are all human and we all have the right to dress how we want, love who we want and be who we want.

Indeed, the future is female.
