Quote by Fadime Sahindal;
“I became a voice and a face for girls living under oppression, girls who risked rejection or murder unless they submitted to their families will and way of living” (Quote taken from a speech Fadime held at the Swedish Parliament.)

Six years ago today Fadime was brutally murdered by her father – a great loss for those close to her but also to Swedish society. I wrote an essay about the iconic significance her photographed face came to have. This image was taken in Sara Mohammads home while I completed my work. Please support Sara Mohammads struggle against honor killings.

I consider Fadime Sahindal one of the greatest freedom fighters through time.
