Nailah Dean: The Isms Project

Muslim Author Tackles Marriage Crisis in New Documentary

An American Muslim activist, Nailah Dean, produced a documentary last year with the aim of highlighting ageism, colorism, sexism, and racism behind the unsuccessful marriage search of Muslim women. But the story has not ended here. 

The stigma of divorce, sizeism and ableism – are also contributing factors to the marriage crisis among Muslim youth. 

Nailah Dean tackles these issues in her documentary about “isms”. 

This second part of the Isms Project, sponsored by Salams App, tells the story of women who face rejection during their marriage search because of one of these prejudices.
