Reclaiming Our Legacy
Women in Islam, Inc. was founded in 1992. Our mission is to advance the spiritual and intellectual development of women to empower them as dynamic participants in civil society and as advocates for human rights and social justice.
Centuries ago, Islam elevated the position of women in society and treated them on equal and equitable standing with men, and in some cases, gave them even higher status. Islam prohibits the oppression of any of humanity – women, children, the elderly, the sick, the wounded, and the physically challenged. The hungry must be fed, the naked clothed, the homeless sheltered, and the wounded or diseased given medical care, regardless of their political views. Our vision and mandate are to reclaim that Legacy.
