I have something for courageous people, especially for strong ones who dont fear saying what they believe is right despite having a different unacceptable opinion of the majority of people around them.
Dr. Nawal El Sadawi grabbed my attention a couple of weeks ago with her intellectuality and strength in defedning women rights. (Read below in another blog about her).
Today, I came to know another amazing woman. This woman name is Irshad Manji. She didnt only wake up to a world where women are still classified to be 2nd class citizens, but she also came to realize that her sexual orientation is different than those of the majority of people around her which is not acceptable, and at the same time she was brought up to be a Muslim living in a western country where all know the perception of Islam these days around the world after 11th sep.
Irshad, stood for her womenhood, she didnt abandon her religion, and couldnt change her sexual orientation. She faced ignorance and hatred from all angles which drove her to search and read more in order to manage her own religion, sex, and sexuality and be happily living and comfortable with herself and people around her.
I recommend her personal website for everyone to take a look at:
