About this event

February 1st, marks the annual World Hijab Day (WHD) in recognition of millions of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab and live a life of modesty.

To mark this day, Muslim Sisters of Éire will be hosting a virtual conference on the 1st of February to celebrate the achievements of Muslim women and the steps we have taken to actively integrate. We will be highlighting the challenges that come from defying stereotypes and displaying our threads that have been woven into the very fabric of Irish society and that through integration, we can bind together, regardless of our faith and background, to make Dublin a richer and more diverse society.

This year, we will be working in partnership with the World Hijab Day organisation. It is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to dismantling bigotry, prejudice and discrimination against Muslim girls and women through awareness, education and empowerment. Their goal is to encourage religious tolerance, cultural understanding and international solidarity.

So put your kettle on and get your cuppa tea and cake out and join us for a fun filled morning to celebrate the hijab and the women who choose to wear it.

Organiser Muslim Sisters of Éire

Organiser of World Hijab Day Conference

Muslim Sisters of Eire are a women’s group, based in Dublin. We officially began in July 2010 and are a non-profit organisation, whose primary objective is to provide support and a safe place for Muslim and Non-Muslim women alike.

We focus in areas of diversity, support, intervention, integration and youth support. Muslim Sisters of Eire have organised activities that cover spirituality, stress management and relaxation, education, youth work, diversity and integration, sports and recreation, counselling, fundraising, media, conferences and day trips. We are also heavily involved in projects that aim to provide relief of poverty and economic hardship, such as feeding the homeless every Friday, occasionally running a soup kitchen, and fundraising for those most in need.

MSOE have also taken part in newspaper, television and radio appearances where we have spoken about Islam in an Irish context.
