On March 27, 2019, get ready for our third annual #MuslimWomensDay campaign. It’s our call to action to media partners, organizational friends and allies to empower Muslim women by pledging to center our voices for the day. This year, we zero in on the theme of “Muslim Women Talk Back to Immigrant Life” to center the voices of Muslim women impacted by Trump’s wall and immigration policies, DACA, the refugee crisis, and beyond.
In the current political climate, it’s becoming more and more important to highlight the narratives of those we don’t always hear from. On #MuslimWomensDay, you can use social media to be an ally in elevating the narratives of Muslim women by retweeting and sharing Muslim women’s stories on your social media platforms and celebrating the Muslim women in your life.
We are joined by dozens of partners committed to passing the mic, including Allure, Brit+Co, Broadly, Bumble, Bustle, Byrdie, Create & Cultivate, College Fashionista, Cosmopolitan, The Cut, Dotdash, Elle, Facebook, Fader, The Female Quotient, Forbes, Girl Gaze, Girls Who Code, The Guggenheim Museum, HerCampus, Huffington Post, HYPEBAE, HYPEBEAST, Instagram, Institute of Social Policy & Understanding, Kode With Klossy, MAKERS Women, MTV, Nylon, Obsessee, Out, Project Everyone, Refinery29, Remezcla, Snapchat, Spotify, StoryCorps, Teen Vogue, Them, Tumblr, Twitter, Vice, Vogue Arabia, YouTube and more.
We will be flooding the internet with new, original content telling Muslim women’s stories and amplifying their authentic experiences. The day will feature a back-to-back Facebook Live Lineup beginning at 10AM hosted by HerCampus, NYLON, Planned Parenthood, Teen Vogue, and VICE with notable speakers including Haute Hijab Founder Melanie Elturk, ComingOutMuslim.com founder Wazina Zondon, and TEDx speaker Dalia Mogahed. You can stream Spotify‘s #MuslimWomensDay featured playlist of artists and allies. Snapchat will be highlighting a global story of your messages using their special #MuslimWomensDay filters.
In our social media era, we are more capable than ever of passing the mic, and we hope you’ll join us.
Celebrate #MuslimWomensDay with us on March 27 by using the hashtag on all social media platforms.
