Working towards normalising the pathway from indoctrination to freedom
Faithless Hijabi works to support Muslim women who are questioning their faith or those who have chosen to leave Islam by providing for them a safe space to explore their new freedom and build new understandings. We provide the space for Muslim and ExMuslim women to share their stories, in order to better understand their ideas and define their unique needs.
We aim to normalise dissent and to ensure women are safe should they wish to leave religion. Unfortunately, however, most families tend to ostracise, abuse and sometimes even threaten women with honour-based violence if they step out of line. We advocate educating all sides in order to garner and instil support for ExMuslim women.
Story telling allows us to view the world in a different way than what we’ve been exposed to. By sharing the stories of Muslim and ExMuslim women from around the globe we aim to engage our audience by igniting empathy based on stories that may be of shared experience or ones that present to us a different understanding of the current landscape. Stories engage our imagination that help us become participants in the narrative. Shared experience validate our confrontation, inspire us and connect us with others who we relate to. Our vision is to give women a platform to express themselves and engage our audiences in creating awareness for the silenced voices.
