March 27, 2023 marks the seventh annual celebration of Muslim Women’s Day. Established in response to the Muslim Ban in 2017, the global initiative stands to elevate Muslim women’s representation and to amplify their voices and stories. At StoryCorps, we are honoring Muslim women by sharing stories that communicate their diverse experiences.
Add your voice and story to our Archive, alongside those of other Muslim women, by recording a conversation with a loved one. You can record in-person using the StoryCorps App or remotely using StoryCorps Connect. Show your participation in the global campaign by adding #MuslimWomensDay to the description of your interview!
