In order to help combat stereotypes about Muslim women and acknowledge all the positive things they do, the first ever Muslim Women's Day took place on March 27. But let's not make this the only day we honor muslim women's contributions. There are a ton of ways to support Muslim women on a daily basis, and given the Islamophobia rampant within our society, we should all be taking part in them.
And non-Muslim women should be speaking up for them, too. In order for our feminism to count, it has to be intersectional, which means (among other things) that it fights racial injustice along with gender inequality. If you want to elevate women's status in our society, it's important to lift up all women, Muslim women included. So, here are some ways you can support Muslim women during and long after Muslim Women's Day.
