Celebrating HER-story Event, March 2018


As in any faith community, Muslim women have a range of lived experiences.  We are professionals, we are single moms, we are activists and community leaders, we are homemakers, and we are students.  We are sometimes happily married, and other times, happily not.  We are from families that have been here for generations, and we are also refugees that arrived recently.  We are Arab and Hispanic and Black and White. And like women throughout history, we struggle for equity and strive to uplift one another.

Sexual harassment, abuse, and intolerance have become part of the national discourse.  Muslim women also face these challenges.  MWO is conducting a survey of the Muslim women in order to uncover the struggles and challenges they face in our community.

Once the needs are more fully understood, we can offer various workshops led by professional experts to seek solutions for the problems that Muslim women may be facing today. We are also committed to providing links to resources needed for the most marginalized women in the community. 

Also based on the survey's results, MWO will involve Imams and Muslim leaders to find solutions and provide educational programs on the most concerning issues for Muslim women and their families.  Your input will help us serve you better. So, submit a survey and let your voice be heard!

For more information or to get involved in the initiative, please contact Amany Shalaby, MWO's Gender Equity Coordinator, at

For your convenience, there are 2 versions of the survey.  We encourage you to complete the full version so we can gain a deeper understanding of the issues that affect us, but you are welcome to at least submit the shorter condensed version.  **PLEASE DO NOT COMPLETE BOTH SURVEYS.  IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED THE FULL SURVEY, DO NOT TAKE THE CONDENSED VERSION.
