I speak for myself

I Speak for Myself is a national campaign that empowers Muslim women to share their personal messages with fellow Scots, so that together we can challenge damaging stereotypes.

Staggeringly, over 70% of secondary school young people associated words such as “Terrorist”, “Foreign”, “Oppressed” and “Uneducated” with Muslim women.

The campaign through a travelling exhibition of women’s personal messages, aims to tackle misconceptions and common stereotypes about Muslim women, thus reducing inequality and sexual discrimination not only within the Muslim community but also in the wider society.

We are asking you to promise opposition to all forms of violence against women and girls.  We are asking you to help break the silence by taking action to raise awareness and spread the word that violence against women is wrong and will not be tolerated in our community!

We are asking you to be the change you want to see in your community by making the change-maker promise and joining our  change-makers of Scotland.
