MINORITY ETHNIC Inspirational Women’s Awards 2018
International Women’s Day on March 8th is a time when we come together as a society to celebrate the diverse achievements of women worldwide and the significant role that women continue to play in every sector of modern society.
It is also an important occasion for us to reflect upon and advocate against the abuse of women’s rights and the ongoing economic, political, social and cultural discrimination that many women continue to face today.
For women of colour, from minority ethnic backgrounds, the challenges are even more complex. In addition to gender-based discrimination, women of colour continue to face additional racial, cultural and faith-based discrimination – purely because of their identity.
To mark this important day and to celebrate the phenomenal achievements of women of colour across the UK, from Muslim, non-Muslim and non-faith backgrounds, Tell MAMA is proud to announce the launch of the first Inspirational Women’s Awards (IWA) for women of colour.
