The Muslims for American Progress NYC (MAP-NYC) project, launched in 2017 by the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, sought in part to counter the negative media portrayals of Muslims, which are so prominent. What emerges are the stories of Muslim women who, although often unrecognised, have driven significant civil change through politically organizing and making themselves visible. This mobilisation is motivated by a religious identity which calls on them to protect and love, and therefore tackle injustice.
March 27th 2018 marked the second official Muslim Women’s Day, which aims to empower and celebrate the voices of Muslim women. The event was launched by the blog MuslimGirl, which provides a space for the narratives of Muslim women, who exist in a world of misrepresentation about Islam.
