Womxn Crush(ing It) Wednesdays: Saffiyah Khan

Thank the Lorde for smart phones, right? I mean image if you lived your whole life and never got the chance to see this image. I’ve printed it and it’s hanging on my mirror for inspiration, I’d suggest you do the same.

Saffiyah Khan and the beautiful serene smile she wore in the face of this far right EDL leader/nut job gives me life. She is the perfect WCW choice and I have to thank Jasmine for the brilliant recommendation.

This week a demonstration called by the English Defence League was met with resistance from Birmingham, England residents. The EDL is a far right white national formation in England. Saffiyah stepped forward to defend another womxm named Saira Zafar after she was surrounded by 20-25 EDL members. Saffiyah said, “I wasn’t in a confrontational role, I wanted to keep a low profile. I was there with a few friend to look after people – because Muslims and people of colour are often abused.”

So let’s all try and channel to Saffiyah today and for the next 1,379 days!

Thanks for listening babes and stay angry!
