Inspire founder and co-director Sara Khan has today been named on the BBC Woman’s Hour 2015 Power List: Influencers. The list identifies ten women who have had a huge impact on women’s lives in 2015; those who have influenced the way we live our lives and the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
Sara said “I am humbled at being recognised as worthy of such a prestigious title. Having set up Inspire in 2009 to challenge extremism and to champion women’s rights, I do this work because I passionately believe there is a great need for it especially as we witness the threat of Islamist inspired extremism both here and abroad. Whether working with local authorities, schools, the police, with parents or young people, it is a cause I am committed to regardless of recognition or award.
However it is heart warming to know that people do recognise the hard work and positive influence of Inspire. I am grateful to the judges for even considering me as someone worthy of such recognition.”
