International Women’s Day at Radio Dawn 107.6 FM

International Women’s Day at Radio Dawn 107.6 FM

Categories: Past Event Articles

Tuesday March 14 2023

Radio Dawn FM has invited MEND back to commemorate International Women’s Day with Junior Community Organiser Tasnim Zaki and presenter Maham Irfan. International Women’s Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate the achievements and representation of women in Islam and in the present community. However, this year’s campaign’s theme #EmbraceEquity prompted a wider discussion about how Islam envisions equity and what it means for Muslim women.

The show also covered how much more we could do to embrace equity, particularly with the vulnerability Muslim women disproportionately face with Islamophobia and other forms of discrimination. The show also highlighted some of the women pioneering the action challenging Islamophobia and harmful counter-terrorism policies such as, Dr.Layla Aitthadj, Amira Elghawaby and Sultana Tafadar KC.

MEND would like to thank Radio Dawn FM, who are committed to spreading the message of peace and to build trust with Muslims and the wider community, for inviting us back. Please see MEND’s social media post on International Women’s Day here.
