Muslim Masculinity Project

About Us:

The Muslim Masculinity Project (MMP) is a program of Malikah, which is a grassroots women's empowerment group.

MMP promotes Malikah's Healing Justice curriculum that engages men to redefine a positive, healthy Muslim masculinity. We gather men in person to discuss topics like male mental health, prophetic masculinity, gender, how men are raised, and violence against women.

Vision: 

  1. To cultivate a space that is: safe, welcoming, judgment-free, confidential, inclusive (any Muslim-identifying man), listening-oriented, open to various perspectives, focused on personal growth and development. 

  2. MMP aims to cultivate a Muslim masculinity that is: healthy, positive, nurturing, restorative, healing, inclusive, and empowering. 

  3. MMP aims to actively ally with women in preventing gender-based violence. 

Goals:

  1. Educate: We want to create healing and intimate spaces for men to build awareness of the realities of gender-based violence, in its many forms, and the negative impacts that patterns of misogyny have on people of all gender identifications.

  2. Agitate/Activate: We want to create opportunities for critical reflection on internalized norms and men’s roles in systems of gender-based oppression.

  3. Organize: We want participants to begin investing their time and effort into organizing, creating communities of responsible allies who work to dismantle oppressive systems and transform society.

How We Do It:

  1. MMP uses Malikah's Healing Justice curriculum to build physical + digital spaces that are: safe, welcoming, judgement-free, confidential, inclusive (any Muslim-identifying man), open to various perspectives, and focused on personal growth and development.
