    I feel so incredible in my skin*~*~*

    I feel like I’ve reblogged this before, but I’m doing it again because I am so thankful to see bodies that look like mine somewhere other than my mirror. It helps me so much when I’m feeling down and self-destructive, especially since this person is such a babe!

    Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

    Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

    You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

    As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

    Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

    My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

    You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

    So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

    oppression is not a competition

    thank you so much for this wording

    Trivializing smaller forms of oppression does not help in the fight against more brutal and violent oppressions. Anyone who says “There are worse things happening in the world than [insert pretty much anything a Western feminist might talk about].” is actively reinforcing patriarchy.

    indypendenthistory:

    On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.

    Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.

    • Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
    • While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.  
    • She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
    • In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
    • She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
    • Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”

    The term BAMF was coined for such persons. 

    Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?

    Yet another story I would like to read.

    You guys! There IS A MOVIE!
