Fatma Aydemir explains that, in Germany, her “name provokes assumptions that don’t necessarily play out in my favor. Fatma is not very likely to get a reservation for an outside table at a fancy restaurant. Fatma’s email regarding the apartment rental will not even get an answer if she doesn’t happen to be rich. . . . Fatma’s used couch might look just as awesome and well-kept as Anja’s—but it will probably be worth half the price.”  (The Guardian, 1/12/24)
