MWNUK's Annual General Meeting 2016
Feature Event on Muslim Women - Making Britain Stronger
Event Hosted by Naz Shah MP
MWNUK have had another busy and exciting year with lots of interesting developments, and are looking forward to sharing this and our future plans with you during our Annual General Meeting.
Thereafter, AGM business will be followed by a feature event on: Muslim Women - Making Britain Stronger. MWNUK will showcase a digital campaign called #AndMuslim (yet to launch) which challenges negative stereotypes of British Muslim Women in an innovative way, and by highlighting their multiple identities presents these women as real contributors to British society. It is a positive campaign - much needed in the current climate of animosity and hate.
Thereafter, a panel discussion will take place on the realities of Muslim Women- Making Britain Stronger. Also allowing for Questions and Answers from the audience.
