10 American Muslim Women

The Huffington Post:

As we enter the last few weeks of the Muslima: Muslim Women’s Art & Voices exhibition by the International Museum of Women, I have found myself reflecting on the hundreds of women included in this groundbreaking exhibition.

Each and every one of these women is included because she is noteworthy — a cutting-edge artist or writer, a revolutionary who is upending her community’s and the world’s limited notions of what a Muslim woman is capable of doing, a pioneer fighting for women’s and girls’ rights.

As a way of recognizing the many contributions these women are making, I wanted to highlight a handful of these women in a two-part series — this first blog devoted to North American Muslim women, and a second upcoming blog celebrating Muslim women from other parts of the world.
