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.

We need to speak out. We need to involve. We need to be part of the change… I mean, politically. I mean, decision making. We have in Somalia, last 22 years, women who’s fighting. We didn’t have a government - strong government. We are fighting. And all these women who is doing amazing job in Somalia; they never get encouraged. When it comes to peacemaking, when it comes to the decision making, when it comes to the…anything in their life; someone has to make a decision for them and that is not right.
