I want to talk to you guys about an AMAZING opportunity that you guys can be a part of. And yes, I’m using this blog for shameless marketing but it is for a purpose that I really believe in. Noura, also known as Princess Noura on Facebook, started a project called Woahjabi. It’s centered around Muslim Female Empowerment using digital outlets. In this day and age, everyone watches instead of reads, and everyone is affected by what they see.

Twenty-four percent of worldwide news is about women, but unfortunately only 2-14% actually challenges stereotypes. And 91% of Muslims coverage in the media is negative. So not only do we get the repercussions of being Muslim, we also get more because we are women. This is where Noura and I come in- we’re working together to create some digital material to be able to help combat the negative perceptions put on Muslim women. This isn’t simply a response to the media, but it’s also a platform to empower Muslim women.
