Muslimah Writers Alliance (MWA) Director, Aishah Schwartz, of Washington, DC and MWA Member/Newly Published Author, Rania Marwan of Cairo, Egypt meet one another in person for the first time when asked to participate in a short-documentary produced by iFilms of Cairo, Egypt for Al-Jazeera (Arabic) in the summer of 2010.
The program, originally aired December 1, 2010, sets out the basic concept behind MWA and showcases the works of just a few of its 200+ members, in addition to touching on Ms. Schwartz's use of writing as a form of activism.
Established in 2006, MWA is an internationally-based collaboration of Muslim women writers and advocates working together to counter negative and inaccurate perceptions regarding members of the Muslim community and the Islamic faith.
