About the project
Muslim women are active in clubs, communities and families, making them important players in civil society. The effects of their valued contributions go far beyond their own communities and address socially relevant topics. They are involved in a variety of activities, ranging from participating in debates about equality and feminism to supporting refugee causes. This makes these women role models and influencers within and beyond their Muslim communities. Our support efforts aim to further increase Muslim women’s participation. To this end, we support the strengthening and professionalization of Muslim women’s civic commitment as well as demand-based offerings which allow them to experience self-efficacy and build new skill sets. We also want to encourage Muslim women to shape their own public image, contributing to a more differentiated public perception.
