On behalf of the entire Muslim Girl Army, I wholeheartedly thank everyone that have been and continue to support Muslim women. I also extend my appreciation and awe at all the individuals and organizations that showed solidarity with us on our big day. With that said, I want to remind us all that March 27 is only one day. We still have the other 364 days to continue to show love for the entire community, including Muslim women. Pass us the mic and watch Muslim women talk back.
