Given the world we live in, it's important to follow the type of journalists whose reporting you admire and trust, and who have perspectives that aren't simply those of the existing power structure. And in honor of Muslim Women's Day, we selected eight of our favorite Muslim women journalists whose work stands out in an ultra-crowded media landscape. These women all have different areas of expertise, from culture and politics to music and art. Learn more about these notable sources in the slideshow, below.
If you're a fan of reading annual year in review reports, you absolutely have to see them from Fariha Roisin's POV. Though many of the Australian writer's pieces, like "Why Them?" and "Let Me Love You," focus on aspects of the Muslim identity, she frequently provides critiques on film and other cultural mediums. Like many influential young writers, Roisin also hosts her own podcast called "Two Brown Girls," in which she does a deep dive into conversations about sexism, race, and pop culture. Her Instagram page also provides the less woke folk with daily doses of cultural awakening.
