On November 8, 2016, a young, hijab-wearing mother-of-three named Ilhan Omar made history, becoming the first Somali Muslim woman to be elected to state office in America and was hailed by the New York Times as, “one of the bright lights in the post-election darkness.” TIME FOR ILHAN intimately chronicles her hard-fought campaign and offers an inspiring, stereotype-busting portrait of a rising political star as she begins a bold and powerful political career.
