18 Muslim Women to Watch in 2018

18) The women who stood up to Nouman Ali Khan


While the women who were affected by Nouman Ali Khan’s indiscretions go unnamed, their bravery to acknowledge and speak out about Khan’s abuse of power was immense. Their initiative was part of a bigger wave of feminism and anti-sexual harassment initiatives that took hold of 2017. Not only did their decision to go public with NAK’s indiscretions spark important conversations in the Muslim community about accountability and holding preachers and scholars accountable, but also set an example for Muslim women to always talk back.
