Rabi'a Keeble

I think that Muslim women in America need to lead. We need to reflect the fact that we live in America.

Rabi’a Keeble empowered Muslim women to take charge by opening a women-run mosque in Berkeley, California. Tired of entering through separate doorways into shabby women’s quarters in mosques, she decided “that Muslim women in America need to lead. We need to reflect the fact that we live in America.” The mosque will provide a unique safe space for women to talk about sexual assault, marriage counseling, mental health, and different interpretations of their sacred text.
