My Own Personal Jihad
President of WAR International
On September 11th, the world of Islam called the Muslim world to “Jihad,” a war against evil as they perceived it. “Jihad” in Islam has always been a call to war, to action, or an inner struggle to be battled. Perhaps this is my own “jihad” against the evils perpetrated on women.
Women At Risk, International unites and educates women to create circles of protection and hope around women at risk through culturally sensitive, value-added intervention projects.
