US publisher brings Muslim Girl magazine across Atlantic

A new title aimed specifically at Muslim teens is due to hit the shelves later this month. Muslim Girl, a US export, will aim to challenge stereotypes. It will launch on January 25.

The title, published by the US company Execugo Media, will target girls aged 14 to 18 years old. The alternate-monthly magazine will be priced at £2.50.

The magazine will sit alongside titles such as Teen Vogue and Seventeen.

Muslim Girl editor-in-chief Ausma Kahn says: “Most representations of Muslims in the media are negative. Muslim Girl magazine challenges those perceptions by telling the stories of Muslim teens who are proud to be American and who contribute to American society in so many positive ways. This is a chance for their voices to be heard. Our editorial mandate is to enlighten, celebrate and inspire them.”

Regular features will include Qur’an Notes, reviews of TV shows and fashion shoots.
