She Speaks We Hear
We Focus On Racism Sexism Islamophobia
She Speaks We Hear is a voluntary, not-for-profit, non-partisan online platform for women to express themselves on their terms without being over-powered or silenced by sexism, racism or social disadvantage.
The focus of our work is primarily three-fold and includes Islamophobia, racism, and sexism. We do this through story-telling, skills building and connecting women to the public sphere
Female experiences and stories, in particular those of Muslim women, are all too often reduced, simplified and marginalised. The media narrative tends to focus on Muslim women in the context of appearance, or how integrated they are, instead of their positive contribution to society.
Muslim women face multiple prejudices arising as a result of the intersection of gender, faith, and ethnicity. This can prevent their voices from being heard and engaged with.
She Speaks We Hear platforms the stories and experiences of Muslim women, so they can own their narrative, without cultural filters or agendas. The platform provides space for others to understand and access female Muslim voices.
In a world where debate and opinion are highly polarised, we aim to facilitate nuanced discussion, bridge divides, and reclaim the middle ground.
