Yesterday was our fifth annual Muslim Women’s Day! Muslim Women’s Day was launched in 2017 in response to the travel ban, as a way to center Muslim women and our stories. Each year, we partner with top-tier media partners such as Twitter, Tik Tok, Spotify, Bustle, Allure, Elle, and more to bring you content for us, by us.
