A Muslim woman's response to protesters at a conference in Washington, D.C., has gone viral.

Shaymaa Ismaa'eel, 24, was attending a conference for the nonprofit group Islamic Circle of North America when she spotted a group of Islamophobic protesters, reports CNN.

That's when Ismaa'eel decided to pose in front of them, smiling and holding up her fingers like a peace sign.

"On April 21st I smiled in the face of bigotry and walked away feeling the greatest form of accomplishment," she wrote in a tweet on April 23 accompanying the images, which has drawn more than 292,000 likes.

A similar post on Instagram published on April 21 has generated more than 273,000 likes.
