'The strength of this book lies not only in the originality of its topic, but also in the unique way it examines a large corpus of films to show the diversity within the representations of first-generation Muslim Maghrebi women.'
Mireille Rebeiz, Irish Journal of French Studies
'Kealhoffer-Kemp’s book is a must-read for anyone interested in the integration of Muslims in contemporary France—a topic that has again become controversial.'
