As French President Francois Hollande declares "war on radical Islam", we listen to a panel of Muslim women held on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. The women talk about how Islamophobia has affected their lives in the post-9/11 US. The panel was held on September 11, 2011 in Berkeley. Five Muslim women speak about their personal experiences and the impact of the events of 2001 on their communities. Speakers are Veena Dubal, Fariba Nawa, Roshni Rustomjee-Kerns, Dr. Maheen Mausoof Adamson, and Yasmin Qureshi. The panel was organized by Friends of South Asia and held in San Francisco. It was hosted by Sharon Sobotta.
