Progressive male writers endorsed women’s literary activities. For instance, in his biography of Fatma Aliye, the most prolific woman writer of the nineteenth century, Ahmet Mithat attempted to prove to Ottoman readers that being an “honorable” Muslim woman and a “writer” concomitantly was not an oxymoron. After the publication of the biography, Fatma Aliye, who used to sign her work anonymously as “A Woman” began publishing under her own name, setting a precedent to other women writers who followed suit.

It highlights the fact that it is not an edict of Islam, but rather a cultural construct deeply rooted in tradition. Similarly, Malian actress, filmmaker, and activist Fatoumata Coulibaly has become the symbol of resistance to the practice of female genital cutting, and militates on- and off-screen for its eradication. Her forceful role in Moolaade (Sembene 2004) catapulted her ongoing advocacy to a more prominent visibility. Ivoirien Naky Sy Savane, also an actor in Moolaade, has also been a visible advocate for the eradication of the practice.
