Salma Yaqoob features in the Muslim Women Power List 2009

Respect party leader Salma Yaqoob has been included in a specially commissioned Power List of Muslim Women, compiled by the Equality and Human Rights Commission in conjunction with The Times newspaper and Muslim lifestyle journal emel magazine.

The list was chosen by a panel of judges chaired by Trevor Phillips, Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.  The judges were asked to select women who had demonstrated significant results through strong leadership, successful performance in their chosen career and inspired their colleagues and peers.
