"... the single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story [and] the consequence of the single story is this, it robs people of dignity, it makes our recognition of our equal humanity difficult, it emphasises how we are different rather than how we are similar ..." Nigerian Author, Chimamanda Adichie

Important Update! Muslimah Voices to become an Organisation for Muslim Women.

Muslimah Voices is in the transitioning stage - from 'Personal Blog' to 'Organisation' status. So now more than ever your support is needed.

We are currently seeking volunteers for the overall management of the organisation and for our projects/initiatives such as the upcoming Muslimah Voices YouTube TV Channel and the Book Club. The book club has so far only been able to get online participation and membership, but we need a group of between 5-12 Muslim women to physically meet for book discussions.

If you would like to be a volunteer, please drop us a message using the contact form on the website or email Zainab John at muslimahvoices.bafts@gmail.com (include subject 'MV Volunteer') and we will discuss further how you can get involved. If you have skills in graphic designs,journalism, interviewing, writing, public speaking or campaigning, we want to hear from you. It can be a perfect opportunity to start building a portfolio of your volunteer activities. Or maybe you love book and would like to get involved in managing the book club and meeting for book discussions. Whatever your interest, please contact us. Our volunteers are our life line.
