It is that time of the year again when Baasila acknowledges amazing Muslim women who go unnoticed. The Baasila Award is an incredible platform pioneered to celebrate the substantial contributions of Australian Muslim women.
The inaugural Women Acknowledging Women Awards of 2018 celebrated the contributions of diverse Muslim women in our communities. Against a divisive and hostile backdrop, Muslim women continue to transcend social barriers and find opportunities in social conditions of adversity and discrimination:
"The women we seek to recognise are the future leaders of our communities, those breaking new ground, despite facing oppression and severely limited opportunities. We specifically aim to recognise women who are seldom seen, yet whose contributions and efforts go a long way in maintaining social harmony. These women are nominated by their female peers, to embody the adage ‘when we lift and enable women, we progress our entire society.'"
If you know of such an inspiring Muslim woman, please nominate her now by filling out the online nomination form. It will only take a few minutes of your time.
Entries close Sunday, 19 May 2019.
More details about the celebratory event will be provided in due time.
