Long ago, Muslim women rode into battle to defend their dreams. They opened doors to the worldΓÇÖs oldest library. They ruled, started movements, and spread knowledge. Today, Muslim women continue to make history. Once upon a time, they were children with dreams, just like you. Discover the true stories of nineteen unstoppable Muslim women of the twenty-first century who have risen above challenges, doubts, and sometimes outright hostility to blaze trails in a wide range of fields. Whether it was the culinary arts, fashion, sports, government, science, entertainment, education, or activism, these women never took ΓÇ£noΓÇ¥ for an answer or allowed themselves to be silenced. Instead, they worked to rise above and not only achieve their dreams but also become influential leaders. Through short, information-rich biographies, Muslim Girls Rise introduces young audiences to the diverse and important contributions Muslim women have made and to role models they may never have heard of before but whose stories they will never forget.
