Current campaign (http://www.flickr.com/photos/darahlulbayt/) which I’m assuming is either in Dearborn, Michigan or in the UK where Muslims are going around and giving out roses during the month of Muharram with islamic messages attached to them.
I want to do this kind of project in NYC as well, but I’m just looking for people who would want to do this with me.
It’s so beautiful to see something like this on the streets, it really is.
"We’ve been taught a woman’s body will cause men to sin. We’re told that if a woman shows too much of her body men will do stupid things. Let’s be clear: A woman’s body is not dangerous to you. Her body will not cause you harm. It will not make you do stupid things. If you do stupid things, it is because you chose to do stupid things."
