Gender Equality

Samina is the CEO of an award winning national organisation Amina – The Muslim Women’s Resource Centre which annually provides services and support to over 4000 Muslim and Minority Ethnic women, empowering them to live better and safer lives, free from discrimination and abuse.

With degrees in social research and community regeneration, Samina has worked in the voluntary sector for the last 13 years, with roots in community youth work, to managing a national listening ear helpline primarily for Muslim women, to co-ordinating an employability project which specifically addressed overcoming challenges compounding on Muslim women's economic and other progression.

Samina pioneered Amina - MWRC and Scotland’s first ever campaign around tackling prejudice and the negative stereotyping of Muslim women - ‘I Speak for Myself’ which included the voices of over 400 Muslim women.

Recently, through the lens of her son, Samina founded a community action initiative, ‘Bear Love from Scotland’ which aims to bring hope into the lives of young refugee children in camps.
