An East London-based charity (Maslaha) is looking for Muslim women to participate in arts exhibition that illustrates the achievements of everyday Muslim women. Rather than targeting the most prominent female Muslims in the country, the charity is intentionally looking for those ‘whose stories are yet to be told’ (BBC). The exhibition aims to challenge negative portrayals of Islam and to counter the current lack of information about Muslim women’s contribution to British society and life in the UK. Through this, the charity hopes to improve the understanding of Islam in the UK and to dismiss the stereotype of “submissive” Muslim women.
