These 20 Tweets Remind Us Why Muslim Women's Day Is So Necessary For Us Today

By Mustafa Gatollari

I'm not a religious person, and although I was born Muslim, and was a pretty serious practitioner for a really long time, I'm not anymore.

I've got my own person views on religion, specifically Abrahamic ones, but I don't have a problem with those who want to practice it staunchly so long as it doesn't impede the freedoms of others. I grew up with people who were super into Islam (I was too,) and for the most part, they're just like every other person who wants to have a decent job, get married, and live a comfortable life.

But I recognize there's a certain amount of animosity towards Muslims in America, and much of it comes from horror stories in third world countries where men treat women without equality or respect.
