Changing the Muslim Women Narrative

October 30 Tweet Party Recap –  Changing the Muslim Women Narrative


On October 30, 2013, Muslimah Montage (@muslimahmontage) hosted a tweet party, where we discussed the current Muslim women narrative. Below are some of the highlights of our chat.


Muslimah Montage’s first question was “How has the current narrative of Muslim women personally affected your life?”


Our next question was “What’s the dominant narrative of  Muslim women? What do you think needs to be done to change this narrative?”  Here are some answers:


We had lots to say about the next question.  “How do you think Muslim women can remain relevant and be heard?”


Followers shared with us the Muslim women that inspired them:


We asked: “How can we demonstrate the nuances?”


What are you doing to dispel some of the stereotypes that are out there about Muslim women?


Finally, we asked, “How can Muslim women be more visible? What can we do too help to bring them to forefront (speeches, panels, interviews, etc)?”
