“I fully support the campaign Change the Script because I believe the answer to national and global inequality lies in leadership from all sections of society. British women are continuing to make an enormous contribution to Britain and British Muslim women in particular need to have their contributions in the spotlight. The time for this Commission has arrived as we see the third and fourth generation of Muslim women continue to face similar challenges to that of their mothers as they continue to overcome these challenges and show a resilience and strength which Britain can be proud of. The Commission will serve as a platform to highlight the positive contribution and also recognise the challenges that British Muslim women are experiencing in the 21st century. I would be delighted to support this Commission in any way I can.”
