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.
