Violence is becoming commonplace. We cannot let it become inured to it. We hear about weekend violence in the big cities, shrug it off, and are thankful that it was not in our neighborhood. But there is a particular kind of violence that happens in every neighborhood: violence against women. Sadly, so many abused women trusted their partners who professed their love and devotion. Some women escape their abusers with their lives and mental state intact. Others are not so fortunate.

Women have been duped by men for millennia. The same can be said for religion. Faith in a higher power is a good thing to remind us that we are but a tiny fraction of the universe and humankind. In my view, no legitimate religious or secular philosophical tenet commands that we should subject ourselves to abuse at the hands of another human being.

My guest tonight lived through abuse for years, and I’m sure her story will touch everyone.

Yasmine’s book Unveiled: How Western Liberals Empower Radical Islam

Yasmine’s websites: https://www.yasminemohammed.com; https://www.freeheartsfreeminds.com

Yasmine Mohammed advocates for the rights of women living within Muslim-majority countries, as well as those who struggle under religious fundamentalism in general. She is the founder and President of Free Hearts Free Minds, a nonprofit charity that provides mental health support for members of the LGBT community and freethinkers living within Muslim-majority countries where both so-called “crimes” can be punished by execution.

She hosts the podcast Forgotten Feminists, where she has conversations with inspirational women from restrictive religious backgrounds who have fought and who have overcome. Her book, Unveiled: How Western Liberals Empower Radical Islam, is a memoir of her experiences growing up in a fundamentalist Islamic household and her arranged marriage to a member of Al-Qaeda.
