We say we want to educate our girls as much as our boys, but we don’t mean it. We don’t really do the things we need to do.

So, I’m scrolling down..

nai1aa:

My facebook, and I came to realize that I have so very few Muslim friends who I know in person, which are Hijabis.

It might be mostly due to the fact that I’ve lived around Caucasian, more than half my teen years, but a surprise nonetheless. 

I have to strengthen my communication with practicing female Muslimahs.

In’sh’Allah, soon soon. 

you don’t have to wear hijab to be a practicing Muslimah. just saying.

“I’m travelling, mother. Forgive me. Reproach and blame is not going to be helpful. I’m lost and it’s out of my hands. Forgive me if I didn’t do as you told me and disobeyed you. Blame the era in which we live, Don’t blame me. I am now going and I will not be coming back. Notice I haven’t cried and no tears have fallen from my eyes. There is no more room for reproach or blame in the age of treachery in the People’s land. I’m not feeling normal and not in my right state. I’m travelling and I ask who leads the travel to forget.”Translated message written by Mohamed Bouazizi on his facebook before his self-immolation on the 17th of December, 2010

Before being killed, Dr. Alaa’s status said “I hope I don’t die before I get married” 
His friend replied “I hope you don’t die before you finish medical school”
Another friend said “Don’t worry you’ll get married before you die lots of people have done it before”
But he went down. And died. Without finishing med school. Or getting married.

"Dear *insert high school here*"

"Do not seriously expect me to go anywhere near my homework when there is a revolution going on that could change the world forever."

my facebook post on February 1st, 2011.

There are countless reasons rescuing girls is the right thing to do. It’s also the smart thing to do. Consider the virtuous circle: An extra year of primary school boosts girls’ eventual wages by 10% to 20%. An extra year of secondary school adds 15% to 25%. Girls who stay in school for seven or more years typically marry four years later and have two fewer children than girls who drop out. Fewer dependents per worker allows for greater economic growth. And the World Food Programme has found that when girls and women earn income, they reinvest 90% of it in their families. They buy books, medicine, bed nets. For men, that figure is more like 30% to 40%. “Investment in girls’ education may well be the highest-return investment available in the developing world,” Larry Summers wrote when he was chief economist at the World Bank. Of such cycles are real revolutions born.


The benefits are so obvious, you have to wonder why we haven’t paid attention. Less than 2¢ of every development dollar goes to girls — and that is a victory compared with a few years ago, when it was more like half a cent. Roughly 9 of 10 youth programs are aimed at boys. One reason for this is that when it comes to lifting up girls, we don’t know as much about how to do it. We have to start by listening to girls, which much of the world is not culturally disposed to do. Development experts say the solutions need to be holistic, providing access to safe spaces, schools and health clinics with programs designed specifically for girls’ needs. Success depends on infrastructure, on making fuel and water more available so girls don’t have to spend as many as 15 hours a day fetching them. It requires enlisting whole communities — mothers, fathers, teachers, religious leaders — in helping girls realize their potential instead of seeing them as dispensable or, worse, as prey.


basically my mission statement. I <3 Nancy Gibbs.
