Today, the International Museum of Women (the people behind the online exhibition Muslima) hosted a Twitter chat in partnership with Miss Representation to discuss media portrayal of Muslim women. A bunch of wonderful Muslim women (myself included) joined in and had a discussion about media representation surrounding images of Muslim women. This was right up my alley, since it’s the entire reason I started Muslimah Media Watch in 2007–I was (and am) sick and tired of being portrayed through stereotypes.
Here’s a storify of the Twitter chat so you can catch up on all the good stuff you missed!
