Amani Al-Khatahtbeh

Amani Al-Khatahtbeh is the founder and editor-in-chief of Muslim Girl, the largest platform for Muslim women’s voices in the west with unprecedented columns in outlets like Teen Vogue, Fortune and Huffington Post. It became the first Muslim company to make the Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2016 and launched the inaugural Muslim Women’s Day on 27 March 2017. Amani became the first veiled woman to be honoured in the media category, and rang the NASDAQ opening bell in 2016. She was named one of Teen Vogue’s ‘new faces of feminism’ and by The Economist as a ‘generation prophet’. Al-Khatahtbeh was invited by Michelle Obama to speak at the inaugural US State of Women Summit. Her first book, Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age, was released with Simon & Schuster in October 2016 and selected as an editor’s pick on The New York Times bestsellers list. Al-Khatahtbeh is a rising voice in social, religious and political issues, regularly appearing in media outlets such as CNN, NBC, CBS, BBC and more.
