She grew up as a Muslim woman and experienced violence and shaming of women as an integral part of society and culture. She now writes and speaks against these traditions that cause women to grow up with Shame, disrespect and violence. She is the founder of The Unshaming Project.

Thank, I now know why when I am stressed, why I am contracting my abdomen. Thus causing a hiatal henia and breathing problems with my diaphragm.
