every time I think about how strong somali people are the first thing that pops into my mind is Samira Hashi’s documentary about her going back to Somalia 

She meets this woman who lost 3 of her children in a bombing. When she tells her story, Samira (a british raised somali model) starts crying and the woman who lost her children begins comforting her and tell her to be quiet and not to cry

“[Somali] women suffer silently as the psychological impacts of rape are profound and never dealt with for cultural reasons. There are feelings of isolation, shame and a continuous blame. Pain and suffering is stamped on entire families as the devastation of rape erodes the fabric of the community. The suspect and hate that these reprehensible acts against women have created are evident in all Somali communities today where there is much mistrust and polarization.” Yasmeen Maxamuud
