We Celebrate Muslim Women

We Celebrate Muslim Women

During SXSW, we hosted a panel with Forbes/ Women @ Forbes. The brave and totally badass Amani Al-Khatahtbeh spoke about how challenging it is for her to be invited to conversations as a woman of color wearing a hijab. As women, we often think have an unfair disadvantage to men, but Amani shined a light on how much more difficult life is for her with the discrimination she faces as a Muslim woman in the US. She mentioned that we are encouraged as women to "lean in" at the table of opportunity, but as a Muslim woman, she has to climb walls and knock down doors to have the chance to be in the same room as the table. 

She began her company, MuslimGirl.com, to create a platform to speak up for and connect Muslim women, as well as to educate non-Muslims on Islam. She aims to break down the hateful stereotypes surrounding Muslim women, and connect all women through the spirit of sisterhood. At MuslimGirl.com, Amani is "paving the way towards a world in which every woman can raise her head without fear of being attacked for her gender or beliefs." At Bumble, we are honored to have the opportunity to stand together with her on #muslimwomensday, and amplify Muslim women's thoughts and stories on social media. 

As a company that aims to empower women, we think it's important to support Muslim women led businesses. Read on to learn about 8 Black Muslim Women Owned Businesses . We encourage you to support them, and share the love on social media. As women, we are always stronger together.
