This #MuslimWomensDay, We Sounded off on Politics and Identity

Could Muslim Women’s Day ever be complete without us sounding the alarm on all things politics and identity? We think not! Of course, there’s no denying that the conversations surrounding our current cultural and political discourse are so pertinent, perhaps more so than ever before. And so, we are exceedingly proud to bring you a list of original content featured by our partners this #MuslimWomensDay that centered around the topics of identity and politics.

We took this opportunity to explore identity beyond the standard norms, and expose how those on the fringes of societal norms were working to build more inclusive and welcoming environments for all to explore their unique, intersectional identities. So, dive right in for the very best that our partners and allies had to offer with regards to all things identity. Whether you’re searching for the latest on dating (sort of) as a Muslim woman, or advice on how best to go about defining your identity across intersections, or even if you’re just searching for a moment of relatability, we’ve got your back:
