‘My Hijab Has Nothing To Do With Oppression. It’s A Feminist Statement’

Not all Muslim women cover their bodies. Not all Muslim women who do are forced to do so. Like freelance writer Hanna Yusuf, who chooses to wear a hijab in a daily act of feminism. In a new video for The Guardian, Yusuf challenges stereotypes by setting out to reclaim the choice to wear a hijab as “a feminist statement.”

For more on on how the hijab helps women reclaim their bodies watch the full video here.


Muslim woman makes impassioned statement in House of Commons

A Muslim woman, Srosh Hassana, taking part in the Daughters of the Vote event on Parliament Hill, addresses islamophobia and xenophobia in an an emotional statement in the House of Commons on International Women’s Day.

I’m so tired.

This is 20-year-old Amna Aljuaid’s last video.

She is a girl from Saudi Arabia, who tried to escape from her physically and verbally abusive father but was brought back. There was no way for her to denounce her abuse, as she would’ve been immediately locked up in a women’s shelter/PRISON.

Amna suspected that something was going to happen to her. She thought her father was going to kill her. So she recorded the message above, and this other, longer one (LINK).

Now she disappeared and her friends have made her videos public.We can’t help her, not really, but we CAN spread this and be fucking enraged at the way saudi arabia treats women. Not even like objects. Less than. Be aware of what’s happening and speak up, pressure the country in any way you can so ONE DAY we’ll stop having girls disappear and become hashtags. #SaveAmnaAljuaid
