Bar Bahar/ In Between – a film by Maysaloun Hamoud

I haven’t seen this film yet, though I’ve heard it received good reviews, and for once the Arabic woman stereotype is broken. For god’s sake, people around the world think that Arab women are supposed to be of one kind, but in this film, as it appears in the trailer, Arab women can live on […]

Little Princesses are sick of society fucking standards

I found this shocking, yet I’m pleased. If you’re appalled by hearing little girls swearing with no shame, then maybe you can think of the society standards.

Alternative Reality

I have seen this clip/movie a week ago and then I’ve noticed that everyone on Facebook is sharing it. It is a share-worthy video. Reality: women are harassed every day when raped it is their fault. If it’s not the case and I’m exaggerating, then please pay a visit to the middle east. Surly a […]

Rapists and how to stop them

‎”THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” I found this on Tumblr and thought it needs to be shared here. (source) It seems that alot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a situation. Everyone should read this especially each n every […]

The Desire to write grows with recognition
