Muslim Women Counter Xenophopia

Activist Muslim women in The Netherlands took a negative campaign of intolerant and offensive statements and turned it to a positive campaign, "So You Think You Know Muslim Women?" to end negative stereotypes, according to the Open Society Foundation website.

Al Nisa  is a volunteer organization for Muslim women and girls, and instituted the positive image campaign. The campaign began using a hateful comment about Muslim society and women and turned it into an Al Nisa poster that communicates integration and diversity in The Netherlands.

About 6% of the population in The Netherlands is Muslim.
