The Girls’ Room is a MuslimGirl.net online monthly series of Google Hangouts in which we discuss the topics that we all actually want to talk about with badass guests from the Muslim community and beyond. Be sure to subscribe to our emails to hear about upcoming episodes before anyone else.

MEDIA RENEGADES will be bringing together female Muslim powerhouses in media to discuss their incredible work and how they got to where they are today; challenges that Muslim women must face in the media industry; what our generation of Muslim women can do to reshape our media narrative; and, most importantly, how our media narrative impacts our real life experiences.
Anyone may take part in the conversation and pose questions directly to the speakers using the hashtag #MGRENEGADES on Twitter. We will be featuring your tweets and answering your questions live on the air.
Google Hangouts only allow up to 100 participants at a time. Therefore, attendance is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
