Muslimah – Making Muslim Women and Girls An Emerging Force Faith Associates has devised a dynamic and innovative programme aimed at exploring the role of Muslim women and girls in different contexts within family, community and society in general. The workshops planned will consider the Islamic historic context which supports and encourages women and girls to play as full as part in every sphere of the life and will look at role models from a historic angle to modern day examples and highlighting in particular Muslim women and girls whom are aspiring role models within their own community and making that difference. The carefully designed programme has drawn on the cultural, religious and philosophical core of the Islamic faith to help, encourage and strengthen women to truly understand and play a positive, inclusive and active role in British society. Particular emphasis is placed on core principles of co-existence, moderation, cohesiveness and have been fused through mediums such as group discussions, drama workshops and packaged and tailored seminars delivered by professional Muslim women.
