altMuslimah (“altM”) will be celebrating its 6th birthday this March, on International Women’s Day. For six years, we’ve been providing cutting edge commentary on a variety of issues pertinent to gender-and-Islam, starting and normalizing discussions the community was previously afraid to broach.
As we begin our 7th year, we are looking to dig even deeper, including featuring more male voices on our site. In particular, we are looking for male perspectives on relationships, family, co-ed power dynamics, gender roles, and other issues pertinent to Muslim men’s relationship with Muslim women.
What does it mean to be a good Muslim man? How can Muslim men contribute to the empowerment of Muslim women? What are your perspectives on fatherhood, marriage, dating/courtship, work-life balance, sexuality, romance, friendship?
Essays should be between 750 to 1000 words and can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be subject to review and editing, but no essay will be published without your prior approval.
We look forward to hearing from you!
