Today on Your Call: How do we reconcile our inner lives with our religious and cultural identities?


On today's Your Call, we’ll speak with the authors of Love, InshAllah: The Secret Love Lives of American Muslim Women.  25 women share their stories of reconciling who they are with where they have come from.  One writes “I fear being forced to choose between two integral components of my identity: my faith and my sexuality.”  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  What are your stories of self-discovery in the context of a religious or cultural background? It’s Your Call with Hana Baba, and you.
