Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Muslim Women’s Day — our third annual one — a huge success!
With all that’s been happening in the world lately, particularly with all the bigotry, religious intolerance, and hatred that’s being spewed on a daily basis, it was nice to see lots of support and good tidings being posted for all of us Muslim girls from our allies and partners, and I think all of my sisters would agree!
Simple acts of solidarity seem more important now than ever before, and I think many don’t realize how much a few kind words can mean. A short post of appreciation on social media can impact the perception of so many, especially in today’s digital age. Support akin to what we saw on #MuslimWomensDay indicates that we are being seen, that we are being acknowledged. The fact that so many went out of their way to show their support for the astounding strength of the Muslim women who inspired them was astonishing, and did not fail to surprise and uplift.
And so, in light of the stunning display of allyship, here are some super sweet Muslim Women’s Day tweets that gave us all the feels, and showed us true allyship is out there:
