Inspiring Change: Samina Ansari
Above is Samina's photo from the the "I Speak for Myself"campaign, a travelling exhibition displaying hundreds of the messages captured during Amina's roadshow and which 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.
“This was about Muslim women sharing their messages with fellow Scots."
“The messages talk about all the things that women talk about, regardless of their race and religion. In their own words they say, ‘This is who I am’.”
For her inspirational quote Samina chose the words of Mother Teresa.
