Voices of Muslim Women (VMW) is a non-religious, social and professional platform that celebrates and empowers women, builds bridges across communities, and fights negative media portrayals of Muslim women. The Gala is VMW’s 2nd Annual Film Festival and Awards night. Set to be a glamorous and glittering night, the Gala is open to everyone and is an opportunity for people across the Lower Mainland to dress to impress and mingle with the best. The evening includes a screening of select films showcasing the narratives and personal journeys of local Muslim girls and women, as well as the VMW Awards ceremony, followed by refreshments, selfies, and hobnobbing.
The 2018 VMW Awards are divided into eight categories to recognize phenomenal individuals and highlight their incredible accomplishments. By showcasing these amazing girls and women, we hope to empower and inspire others and build a positive image of Muslim women. The Awards seek to embrace and celebrate the diversity and fearlessness of the Muslim feminine in British Columbia, those who are truly making a difference in their communities. This event is an incredible opportunity for audiences from across Vancouver to come together for a meaningful evening of understanding, celebration, and solidarity.
