By Sultanah Parvin | May 24, 2017

It is time to remind ourselves who we are. We are compassionate souls. yet right now we will be the target of anger because we are visibly Muslim.

By Rumaysah Yunus | May 21, 2017

Responses to 5 ‘I’m not voting because…’ statements I’m not voting because I don’t care about politics:   In reality, voting has little to do with politics, and more to do with your healthcare. Your education. Your housing prices. Your religious freedom. Your children. Your future. Do you care about those things? The people who will…

PICK OF THE WEEK

By Amnah | May 20, 2017

I’m not going to act like this pick of the week is modestly perfect because there is a slightly deep v at the back which means you will probably want to wear something under it. Some things are worth the extra bit of layering effort and this might be one of them.  I actually saw…

Periods and Ramadan…

By Ashiya Mendheria | May 20, 2017

2 million voices stand silent at the general election…potentially.

By Laila Ali | May 19, 2017

Thoughts on voting  For me, I didn’t always find it accurate to say that voting was the ultimate way to express a political opinion. Indeed, before reaching the voter age, I had attended my fair share of political demos and had written plenty of dramatic think pieces for the local paper as student correspondent. However,…
