This Girl Boss Created a Blog to Give a Voice to Underrepresented Women
The definition of a girl boss may vary (androgynous maternity clothes designer, awe-inspiring director) but the general philosophy never changes. A girl boss is always inspiring, inventive and not afraid to own her individuality.
This week’s girl-bosspiration is Amani Al-Khatahtbeh. Amani is the founding editor of a new blog called MuslimGirl. The site was created as a resource for Islamic girls around the world. Originating as a Lifejournal blog five years ago, MuslimGirl features news, style and faith-focused discussions. Amani started the site after witnessing the struggles that girls like herself were facing on the daily. “I really wanted to find a way to help Muslim women fight back against how we were being represented in the media,” she told Vice’s new site Broadly.
With an easy navigation and an accessible tone (not to mention a super cute Instagram and Twitter), the site is a great place to expand your knowledge of Muslim culture. Not only is this a cool blog because a woman saw a gap and filled it, MuslimGirl is also the first mainstream media network made by and for Muslim women. Expanding female representation and supporting a GB? Sounds like a win-win.
