This bystander’s guide to Islamophobic harassment was created by a young illustrator and filmmaker who works in Paris and goes by Maeril. She made versions in both French and English. Ladies, feminism includes our Islamic sisters and we must protect them from racial harassment as quickly as we would move to protect any other woman being harassed for wearing shorts.
WE SHARE OUR PLANET! HELP TO REMIND THOSE WHO FORGET!

Please do not take this right away from them. Trans* & gender questioning students... You have every right to be here: -In this facility -In this university -In this world
Yes! (It's weird that when I click on this pin to see similar pins, most of them are from sexism-deniers & racism-deniers. My feminism is based on the tenant that women are people. Not saints.

We need to look out for each other, especially when these same "good men" are the ones telling us, "I wouldn't do that to you, you shouldn't be complaining about harassment on the streets." Your gut will know a good man; they're real, and they won't ignore your fears about being harassed and stalked by other men.
