Make Sure You Didn’t Miss These Powerful #MuslimWomensDay Convos

Muslim Women’s Day 2019 may have come and gone, but the fun never stops. This year was even bigger and better than ever before, thanks to an army of partners who committed to passing the mic, and using their platforms to elevate the narratives of Muslim women in all arenas.

We are so very grateful, not only to our partners, but also to our allies; those who stood with us and voiced their unequivocal support by speaking out about the Muslim women in their lives, using the hashtag #MuslimWomensDay, and committing to support and listen as Muslim women continue the fight to determine our own narratives.

As original content flooded your timelines and newsfeeds, we invited a few of our partners to join us in hosting Facebook Live events. What ensued was an extensive series of discussions on fashion, politics, and what truly defines the experiences of being a Muslim woman in this day and age.

Join us as we recap the #MuslimGirlFire that was our lineup of Facebook Lives.
