What to Expect for Muslim Women’s Day 2022

Are you ready for Muslim Women’s Day 2022? We’ve been working with some of the best partners on the planet to pave the way for this year’s sixth global campaign. We’ve been rolling out opportunities focused on community: We announced our design contest in official partnership with Twitter. We also announced opening paid pitches on International Women’s Day.

This year’s theme is all about “Securing Our Space” in every domain and that’s exactly what we’ve got planned for this year’s campaign!

The Official Artwork for Muslim Women’s Day 2022

This year’s featured artist is Samya Arif!

Commissioned through Girlgaze — a multi-sided platform company built on a mission to close the gender gap and to champion diversity, inclusion, and representation across the creative industry — we’re excited to bring real meaning through art for this year’s theme.

The Agenda for Muslim Women’s Day 2022

Get ready to see Samya’s artwork light up across social media with our partners, along with the soon-to-be-announced winner of our Twitter design contest that will be featured on the explore page and seen by users worldwide.

We invite you to join us for the #MuslimWomensDay Kick-off Event on Twitter Spaces in the morning, which will spotlight the new Muslim women’s on-screen test in partnership with the Geena Davis Institute, Muslim Casting, and Pillars Fund. End the day with us in our Wrap-Up and Ramadan Resolutions Twitter Space in the evening as we close out this year’s campaign with our Ramadan goals!

We’ll be celebrating Muslim Women’s Day by highlighting and acknowledging Muslim women that are making an impact, as well as the Muslim women that we have in our lives. Be sure to use the hashtag #MuslimWomensDay on Twitter and TikTok to join our celebrations for the day.

We’re also introducing NASA to this global campaign, as we’ll be joined by two phenomenal Muslim trailblazers from NASA that are making an unprecedented impact and paving the way for more Muslim women in STEM.

Our Campaign Partners

This year is a huge milestone for Muslim women across the globe as we’re working with some of the biggest digital players to break the conversation into new spaces and reshape the narrative that has been pushing Muslim women to the sidelines for far too long. On top of that, we’re witnessing Muslim women leading in male-dominated industries and enabling young Muslim girls to feel represented in society and culture, even in the entertainment industry.

This year’s campaign wouldn’t be possible without our allies Allure, Bumble, Bustle, Byrdie, Elle, The Female Quotient, Girlgaze, Girls Who Code, GQ Middle East, Her Campus, HYPEBAE/HYPEBEAST, Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, Kode With Klossy, Malala Fund, MTV, NASA, Netflix, Oxfam, Project Everyone, Refinery29, Snapchat, Spotify, StoryCorps, Teen Vogue, TikTok, and Twitter.

Getting Ready for Muslim Women’s Day 2022

This year’s celebration is meant to be special for every Muslim woman that has faced adversity to secure her space in whatever role she occupies.

We recognize all Muslim women who have been making so many sacrifices on a daily basis from all walks of life just so that they empower other Muslim women and girls to dare to dream and chase their desired paths without being dehumanized or marginalized because of their intersectional identity as Muslims and women.

For that reason, we invite you to join us — from all identities — to observe and celebrate Muslim Women’s Day 2022 on March 27. Post, retweet, and share Muslim women you know on that day and use the campaign’s hashtag #MuslimWomensDay on TikTok and Twitter.

Whatever it is that you want to celebrate about the Muslim women you know on Muslim Women’s Day, the world would love to see it.
