Before the #MeToo movement, Muslim Sex Educators forged their own movement called “HEART Women & Girls.” They promote the conversation about sex and sexuality by putting out a series of videos on everything from Pap smears to HPV and sexual dysfunction.
HEART holds workshops around the country at mosques, rape crisis centers, and college campuses. Part of the movement is to help non-Muslim counselors learn how to treat Muslim clients.
The reason HEART is becoming so prominent in the industry is because the Muslim community is tired of sexual harassment and abuse complaints being taken as unserious. They want to be there for victims of abuse who felt alone.
Do you know any movements or nonprofits similar to HEART? Tell us below.

This video is a very strong visual representation about the impact of harsh words and how labels can can affect someone. I can’t stress how essential it is to strip away the stigma, stereotypes and names that society uses to put us in a box, define us and keep us ‘in place.’ ••• This is more than just stigma regarding mental illness; these few letters strung together creates a chain that ends up being wrapped around someone’s ability to accomplish their visions and dreams. •••
Labels act as a barrier, a fence, prohibiting us from going from where we are now to where we want to be. Labels hold us back from taking that leap of faith, that 20 seconds of insane courage, that risk that will push us towards accomplishing our goals. Labels act as a limitation to the endless power of our own potential. We have enough difficulty fighting our own demons within; don’t make it harder on someone else. •••••
Labels: Strip it off. Tear it down. Remove the stigma. ⛓Break the chains.⛓ •••••• #stigma#mentalwellness#chains#insecurities#labels#selflove#freedom#harassment#bullying#jodysteel@artistjodysteel

@peaceeducation this is the most ridiculous post! Im glad this chick called your work. Obviously grosse pointe schools are not that great if they hired your psycho ass! Now you are making lies about her to get back. Then to block her so she cant respond to your lies is cowardly. But you are a cowardly joke so no suprise there. NO ONE is jealous of you so sit down. Just because no one likes you and everyone knows you shouldnt be around kids doesnt mean you can slander them. Doesnt grosse pointe know you cant even be around your own kid unless its supervised? Im sure the parents would like to know that. And how can you be a teacher for 9 years? You said 7 a little bit ago and then said you were born in 1992 and then you said you were 27. Oh i forgot-you are doing the "lying psycho Danielle Miller math method". And you were never with Jonathon. He likes skinny girls from what i hear and yea.. youre not his type. #horribleteacher#howcanyoubeateacher#mentallyunstable#liar#harassment#slander#fired#noteacherfollowsyou#yousuck#fool#noonelikesyou#fake#wannabe#nuts#insaneinthemembrane@grossepointey@grossepointeschoolssuccess
When I walk to my hospital everyday, there's a lot expected from me. I am expected to be covered from head to toe in this hot weather when I can barely breathe. I am expected to cast my eyes down even if the oncoming traffic runs me down. I am expected to let people of the opposite gender look me up and down, xraying me like I owe them something. I'm expected not to smile while walking because someone somewhere may get the wrong idea. I am expected to be responsible not only for myself but everyone around me.
When I go out on the road looking for my transport, I am met with surprised gazes. Everyone on the road is really fascinated with a girl standing on a road and they're so curious, sometimes they stop to ask. They catcall. I am somehow their property.
But you know what? I've had enough. I walk to my hospital like I own it because frankly, they need us and not the other way around. I step on the road with confidence and an aura that I will proceed to stomp anyone underneath my feet. I look people in the eyes, daring them to make a move. If I feel a gaze piercing my body, I turn and approach the person to ask what the hell they want. This has happened numerous times and they look at me with such a surprised look on their face which portrays the mindset of how dare you?! How dare you question my gaze when you're out here existing?!
So, this is me owning myself. I am not anyone's honor. I do not hold anyone's respect but mine. My respect does not lie in the clothes I wear. This road is as much mine as it is yours. Kisi kay father ki sarak nai hoti jo apko taarte hen. Stand up for yourself.
I've been asked various times to 'ignore.' Why? Why should I ignore an attack on myself? Why should I ignore someone deliberately making me uncomfortable and enjoying it?
The era of men ruling is over. We are the women. We are the future now. We will not let anyone stand between us and what we aspire to do.
Ladies, if you're feeling a bit down on yourself today, then head to Morrisons café in Lynn. There's a lovely bunch of retired chaps that would be delighted to make you feel better about yourself by staring at you, nudging one another and making some really imaginative hand gestures. I mean, it's definitely cheered me up no end! I feel totally validated and so happy that they thought I was worth commenting on.
Oh wait, nope. Sarcasm.
