Muslim Sisters Launch Library Collection to Empower Muslim Girls

MICHIGAN – Two Muslim change-maker sisters Mena and Zena Nasiri from Rochester, Michigan, have created a non-profit organization to donate books with female Muslim main characters to schools and libraries, and encourage Muslim girls to read, Girl TalkHQ https://girltalkhq.com/sisters-launch-library-collection-to-empower-muslim-girls-through-books/ - reported .

Mena and Zena established https://www.girlsofthecrescent.org/ - Girls Of The Crescent because they “didn’t find enough nuanced and varied narratives in books and media that featured positive representations of Muslim women and girls.”

To address this issue, both girls held a book drive in their community to increase the number of books with female Muslim roles at their school media centers.

The ultimate goal of the Nasiris is to make sure that children like them will be able to read books with characters like themselves and to increase diversity in literature...
