I've had enough of the sensationalist, exoticised, demeaning portrayals of Muslim women seen all throughout the media, and this is my way of countering all the nonsense.
This is not an attempt at 'breaking stereotypes' or trying to enlighten people, if you're ignorant enough to believe that Muslim women are oppressed and subjugated by Islam then that's your own problem.
This is my way of giving recognition to all the women who inspire me, and hopefully sending out some positive vibes.

Muslim women holding placards that read, `we demands special law against rape’ `keep honor of women,’ and others condemn the recent rape of the girl in Delhi. Protesters had tied black bands on their heads to observe ‘black day.’ [Source]
