Azirah Jamal is a practising artist and creative educator from Singapore. Her work focuses on the search for her voice and identity. She is currently exploring topics such as gender roles in Islam, family law matters, women’s rights and flaws in its practices, and mistranslated arrangements in Islam. Azirah believes that being a woman in a patriarchal world is tough. On top of that, being a minority woman trying to reclaim the space where women's voices are silenced and shamed, and misogyny is masked under the name of religion, is harder. This led to her interest in feminist studies as well as the search for how and where women of Islam fit in the contemporary world.
