There was no shortage of Muslim woman who made headlines and slayed in 2019 – fighting for their rights, helping those in need, running for political office and affecting all sorts of positive change on local, national and international levels. Here on the blog, we were honored to feature many of these change makers and women who created a splash. But in doing our research for this gallery, we realized there are so many more stellar Muslim women to recognize! We’re featuring 14 women who made newsworthy contributions this year. From CNN heroes to activists to authors, we wanted to celebrate a year of owning our own narratives and fighting for what is important to us.
And, this list doesn’t even crack the surface! Leave us a comment to tell us your favorites this year!
