Many of us who had the opportunity to attend the Jan. 21 Women’s March are still taking it all in and looking through our photos to hold onto the beautiful memories. Others who weren’t able to attend lived vicariously through it all on social media — and we’re here to help out. Check out some of our favorite photos of fierce Muslims at the Women’s Marches around the United States.
WAY TOO MANY misconceptions about Islam exist in our society- misconceptions that have had and will continue to have devastating effects on Muslims worldwide. Sisters and brothers in faith, friends and advocates, what are we doing to change the dialogue? In all honestly, I made this sign in my trunk with tissues and finger paint 2 minutes before the March. I was embarrassed about how it looked compared to all the other beautiful signs out there, that it wasn't a witty or catchy slogan. But here's the deal. At the end of the day, it didn't matter. What mattered was the message. What mattered was the passion in which I spoke about the topic. And this message resonated with so many in the crowd. It made a difference. No matter how small of an act it was, it helped shed Islam in a good light. What I ask of all of you is to also put in that ounce of effort, to have courage, and faith in your message. To ask questions. To approach people who are different than you and try to understand where they are coming from with respect and patience. In the end, that's the only path towards progress #meetamuslim #nastywoman #womensmarch #islam #lovetrumpshate #birmingham #instagrambham #liveon3340 #wbrcandme #muslimsoftheworld1 #strongmuslimwomen ?: @samanmnajmi
