MEHREEN BAIG IS AN ACTIVIST AND BLOGGER WHO IS ON A MISSION TO GIVE A VOICE TO YOUNG BRITISH ASIAN WOMEN.
Mehreen’s writing has often covered subjects surrounding Asian women that have been considered taboo. As a result she has featured in coverage by the BBC, The Telegraph and The Observer.
Last year Mehreen took part in BBC 2’s BAFTA winning two-part documentary Muslims Like Us, which followed a diverse group of Muslims living together in a house. On the back of her breakthrough appearance in that programme, Mehreen was widely interviewed and was invited to speak at conferences around the world including The Women’s Economic Forum in New Delhi.
She has presented a segment for The One Show (BBC 1) where she explored the rise in Muslim women learning self-defence and is currently filming a variety of topical features for BBC 1’s Sunday Morning Live. Earlier this year she gave a passionate speech when collecting the award for Reality & Constructed Factual at the BAFTAs.
Mehreen has worked as an English teacher in a North London secondary school since graduating from the Institute of Education and was the youngest member of staff to be promoted to a senior role within her first five years. She is passionate about education and empowering young women.
