MissMuslim We're like the halal Cosmo - kinda. Welcome to MissMuslim, where all of the patriarchy's worst nightmares come to life; and we've run out of time to sugarcoat our narratives after fighting to take back control of our voices.

MissMuslim wants women to be fearless. We're here to lead the charge with conversations about love, s*x, fashion, politics - you name it. We are the Internet home for third culture kids, the hyphenated millennials, and all who have felt the struggle of having to identify oneself for social acceptance. These are our stories. �

The most comprehensive survey in the country, will collect data on the motherhood experience throughout the last year that will result in necessary and relevant content production in mainstream media around what mothers need and want most to feel at ease and supported in all things home, career, family, and general life to be set up for success. And for the first time, Muslim and Middle Eastern & North African mothers' voices and struggles will be heard and recognized.

As a community hit so hard by pandemic struggles and lack of representation and support, it is more important now than ever before to participate and make sure that our mothers are being properly represented and supported.

Celebrating World Adoption Day with The Piñero Family

Today is World Adoption Day! 🥰

While the discussion of adoption is still an unnecessarily controversial one in the Muslim community - at MISSMUSLIM we believe that helping families find love and little ones find loving homes is something deserving of admiration and support.

If you or someone you know is looking into the adoption process - the Pinero family has shared their journey along with some resources to help you start the process.

Through all of the bumps and hardships you may experience, remember when you're looking to become a parent through the world of adoption, "it's not if, but when."

I see butterflies more often now, randomly, like inside the commuter rail train cart as I was exiting one day or the time a butterfly just flew around me when I was sitting alone outside looking up at the sky. I wonder if it’s God’s way of telling me she is OK. I wonder if it’s a Divine sign." #Grief #loss #lovedones
